  The Cow Jumps Over the Balloon!
The Cow Jumps Over the Balloon!
Special Shape Balloon Airabelle The Flying Cow Owner: W. Dale Ritchie . Airabelle has to be the largest balloon in the world...maybe not, but at this Fiesta she was and she did fly. Note that her feet are below the gondola so they land before the basket. I'd love to see her land, maybe next time. I also understand that she doesn't always fly...maybe waiting for the right moon conditions...LOL...or maybe she takes off at night when she sees the moon!

Yep, you're probably right...as in, "Hey diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon..." Well, she's soaring high in broad daylight and looking good doing it, Patricia...what a fun capture!

What an enormous balloon! Very nice color and light! She must be filled with powdered milk or else they'd never get her off the ground! Very impressive, Patricia! Great info, too!

Thanks Thomas....she was a beaut!!! Only flew on Saturday morning....the cheers when she took off were deafening....just about when every special shape takes off there is a cheering crowd...but Airabelle had a largest crowd of all.....
