1. Neat article but the first line is wrong. This was a Gas balloon race. Modern hot air balloons were not invented until 1960 by Mr. Ed Yost. Hot air balloons were rarely used or raced even a few years after their invention in France because of the invention of the gas balloon very soon after the first manned hot air balloon flights.

    1. Thank you for the correction.
