Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,

Jean-Pierre Blanchard's hydrogen balloon in The Conquest of the Air.

In 1783, as the Montgolfier brothers are developing the hot air balloon, JP Blanchard uses the hydrogen ("Dihydrogène" as said at that time) as gas to inflate and rise up its own balloon. After his first successful balloon flight in Paris on 2 March 1784, he made the first successful manned balloon flight on 21 November 1783. He then went in the summer of 1784 to England where he made three flights, the third one (with Jeffries) was the first flight over the English Channel, taking about 2½ hours to travel from England to France on 7 January 1785.

Hydrogen balloons are easily identified (from those using hot air) by the narrow chimney on their base.

This page lists all films that feature the Jean-Pierre Blanchard's hydrogen balloon.
