Balloon Parachute Artwork

In My Humble Opinion--
Balloon parachutes should not be 'plain' They should have a design of some sorts. That being said, it doesn't apply in all cases. Some balloons need a plain parachute to go with the design of the rest of the balloon. But, (in my opinion) most balloons should have some sort of design. One of the most popular designs is the smiley face. In making home built balloons, a design on the parachute adds to the complexity. On purchased balloons, it adds to the cost. Therefore, it isn't always practical. But I still think it is neat. Even a simple design of different gores different colors is better than just plain.
This web site is dedicated to show as many different balloon parachutes as I can find.
If you would like yours added, please send a picture to me:

N-2580YFireFly 7-15 (77K)Champagne CowboyHidden IndianDennis & Kim ShortOK

Originally owned by S.E. Tangney and flown at ABQ for many years.
Rumor has it that S.E. didn't design the Indian and didn't even know it was there until the first inflation.
The dealer that ordered the balloon for him decided that if there was a cowboy on the balloon, there HAD to be an indian somewhere!
Except for the stitching, it can't be seen from the outside.
