The first balloon ascent, c1785 (1919)

The first balloon ascent, c1785 (1919). Joseph-Michel (1740-1810) and Jacques-Etienne (1745-1799) Montgolfier developed a hot air balloon in Annonay, Ardeche, France, and demonstrated it publicly on September 19, 1783. The first untethered flight with human passengers launched on November 21 1783. King Louis XVI had originally decreed that condemned criminals would be the first pilots, but Jean-Francois Pilatre de Rozier (1754-1785) and Francois Laurent le Vieux d'Arlandes (1742-1809), petitioned for the honour. From The Wonder Book of Aircraft for Boys and Girls, edited by Harry Golding. [Ward. Lock & Co. Limited, London, Melbourne and Toronto, 1919]
