Chariot Balloons

There are basically three different types of hot air balloons:
  1. Normal Balloons (Wicker baskets, hold several people)
  2. Cloud Hoppers (One man balloon, tank on your back)
  3. Chariots (one or two person balloon, you sit on a seat)

This site is dedicated to information and pictures about Chariot balloons
