Up in the Air

Record #:
Two French brothers, Joseph and Etienne Montgolfier, invented the hot air balloon in 1783. North Carolina hot air balloon pilots keep their invention alive with the Carolina BalloonFest held in Statesville each year. Each October, residents can join the pilots at the Statesville Regional Airport and fly thousands of feet above the ground.
