Vondelmolen balloon

Flying overhead Vlassenbroek we spotted one of the Vondelmolen balloons on sunday 26/12/2004 in the afternoon. To fly along in one of their balloons, visit the propeller website!
 
Some technical information: you can see the pitot tube under the wing (looks like a gun), a device to measure the airspeed of the aircraft. To the left of it, slightly behind the wing strut, you can see a vent tube. This tube is connected with the fuel tank. The forward speed of the aircraft creates a positive air pressure inside the fuel tank which helps the fuel supply to the engine fuel pump.
