Hot Air Airship

This hot air airship gondola is a Cameron hot air balloon system originally purchased by David Rapp in 1984 for $85,000.  Its maximum speed is 15 miles per hour.  A small electric fan keeps the balloon filled with air so that the burner does not run out of oxygen.  A rope on either side of the cockpit is used to turn the rudder to steer the craft left or right.
