The Great Balloon Project received a very generous contribution from a former military and civilian pilot. The integrity, maturity and clarity of his thoughts were sent to me in the form of an email letter which I read in this video. the only changes made to the letter were two minor ones. I left out the location where he now lives and I also removed a few of the subjects he has researched on-line into a short list. this is what a REAL Pilot says about flying and the FLAT EARTH which he NEVER believed in.
