The man who shaped the history of hot air balloons – BBC News


For more than half a century, Scotland-born Don Cameron has been a pioneer in the world of hot air balloons.

He built and flew western Europe’s first modern hot air balloon in 1967, before founding his company Cameron Balloons from the basement of his flat.

The company has since become one of the world’s largest balloon manufacturers, making hundreds of balloons each year.

It is the market leader in special-shaped balloons, producing the likes of Darth Vader, Vincent van Gogh and a dinosaur.

  1. BBC, I hope you bring back your lovely 1997 BBC One Ident Package with the Hot Air Balloon flying around the UK Countryside one day for a special occasion or something, similar to how you brought back the 1991 BBC Two Ident Package back in 2014.

  2. In 2023 the BBC celebrate their centenary as a 'public service broadcaster'. Can we start a campaign to be totally rid of this poisonous organisation by then? The thought of them being allowed to splash taxpayers' cash around on a full year of self-congratulatory back-slapping as they shove their 'success' down the UK's throat is nauseating.

  3. 1) Christian nation
    2) Spoken English
    3) Nice people
    4) Wealthy country
    5) Less Racism

    Do you guys think this country does exist in the world? I assume "Canada" might be the country where those five factors can be fit in. What do you guys think? Am I right?

  4. It’s time the bbc was axed. We need to get a petition and have millions sign it to get rid of the bbc and the license fee. The bbc do nothing but lie to people and it is nothing more than false propaganda machine. AX THE BBC NOW.

  5. What is the most important question in the history?
    !!!!!!! Why did Jesus Christ come to this world and what should we do to get saved?

    Everybody needs
    to meet Jesus Christ before his death.

    It is possibile, I AM an exemple.
    Satain is the lord of this world,

    God is so much better than we think, He saved us from this world and our bodies, we just need to be born again from His Holy Spirit.
    We have to be babtised, when we believe in Jesus Christ Name..

    Ask Jesus Christ, He always answers when You call Him honest. He is God who brought the grace and the truth!!
    Jesus Christ is the living Word of God, not the Bible!

    The Bible tells us about 50%of the truth, most of the old testament is about satain, the lord of the body called ,,god and lord,,

    When You will read It with the Holy Spirit, He will show You, what I mean..

    2.Corinthians 3 .14-17

    1.Chronicles 21, 1 and 2.Samuel 24, 1

    There is much, much more to find in Your Bible.

    Always ask the Holy Spirit, do not trust everything You read and what the people say.

  6. The bbc receive nearly £5 billion in income a year and yet they can't even be bothered to report the news on youtube in a timely fashion. 

    What utter contempt they have for us all.

    The bbc poll tax needs to be decriminalized.

  7. Great. Informative human-interest story. See how well the BBC does when it informs instead of preaches? (and not a Trump Blimp in sight. That must have taken a lot of restraint. Well done)
