4th July Australian Ballooning Anniversary

The 4th of July 2014 will be a significant day for Australian ballooning. It will be the fiftieth anniversary of the first manned flight of a modern hot air balloon at Parkes NSW by Terry McCormack and the members of the Aerostat Society.

Terry’s son James has published an article in the Jan-Feb 2014 issue of Australian Geographic magazine about those early days, his feelings for his father and his recent flight in Canowindra with Phil Kavanagh.
