This is Buzzards Glory! Named, designed and flown by the Buzzard himself (Peter). This is a 77,000 cubic foot envelope used mainly in the cooler months and is the primary training balloon.
I use Alley Cat for competition. It is a smaller envelope just 56,000 cubic feet which enables me to zoom up and down. It is also made from a special fabric called “Sore-coat”
The “CRBT” Cedar Rapids Bank and Trust balloon is a bigger envelope measuring 90,000 cubic feet. This is one on the ride balloons that can carry up to 4 people.
“Cost Cutter” is also one of the bigger balloons measuring 90,000 cubic feet. Matt flies this one the most and has taken many people for rides.
This is my newest balloon and i’m very excited to start flying it. It’s a 77,000 cubic foot envelope which I’m looking forward to glowing.
This was a 90,000 cubic foot envelope which we flew for many years over Cedar Rapids. It was considered a special shape because of the yellow “Cheeto” parts sticking out from the balloon.
This envelope is 84,000 cubic feet and is made of all black fabric. It started out as the McLeod USA balloon and had huge yellow stars that were later removed.
