<ul><li><p>MHot Air Balloon</p><p>A hot air balloon is a very simple type of aircraft that you can use to y from one place to another. Using simple laws of physics, one can travel in the basket suspended from a balloon and enjoy the beautiful view instead of being inside an aeroplane that ies much faster and at a much higher altitude.</p><p>UNF FOR ME!</p><p>Copyright 2012 Mocomi &amp; Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt.

Since air will rise when it is heated, the balloon with the air inside is lifted, giving it an upward thrust. The balloon itself is made up of a nylon material with a heat resistant material at the mouth where the burner is. The liquid propane fuel is stored in cylinders in the wicker basket below. We use wicker because it is light enough to not be excess weight, yet sturdy to hold the weight of the passengers.</p><p>UNF FOR ME!</p></li><li><p>Copyright 2012 Mocomi &amp; Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt.

Since the wind at different altitudes blow in different directions, the navigator of the balloon can increase or decrease the amount of hot air in the balloon to make it rise and fall in order to catch a wind and take you on your magical adventure.</p><p>Hot Air Balloon</p><p>UNF FOR ME!</p></li><li><p>Zeppelins work similarly to hot air balloons excepts they are able to navigate left and right.
