Image of the Day: Space Shuttle Balloon

This week’s Image of the Week (featured on page 5 of Flight International), is taken by AirSpace user apgphoto (Paul Dopson). Paul’s photo depicts the Aeromagic Space Shuttle-shaped balloon, which Paul photographed in July 2009 at the Lorraine Mondial Air Balloons held at Chambley in France. Paul says, “This wasthe morning when 329 balloons took off!”

We’ve selected Paul’s image in connection with our feature articles in this week’s Flight International about the Space Shuttle in honour of the craft’s impending retirement.
