Union Jack Balloon

Union Jack Balloon

The Cook family donated the “Union Jack” balloon and basket shown above (right) to the Museum. The left picture shows the balloon in flight. This balloon was manufactured in England in 1976.  The registration number (N76GB) is in honor of the 25th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, which was celebrated in 1976.
