Man that is so cool. I love hot air balloons! When I was little like probably seven or eight, I went to a gigantic hot air balloon show with my family. That made quite the impression.
That must have been a cool experience! Never got to do that and yeah, those burners are LOUD for sure!When I was a youngster my aunt & uncle were part owners of a couple hot air balloons. There used to be a big festival every summer that they'd fly in. I usually rode in the pursuit van, but got to fly w/ them a few times. So eerily quiet up there, until they hit that burner!!
