*1900’s Victorian landscape hot air balloon event antique oil painting – Artist unknown.
On the 19th of September 1783, the first hot air balloon was launched by scientist Pilâtre de Rozier. On board that maiden flight were three animals: a cockerel, a duck and a sheep. Two months later, on 21 November 1783, the Montgolfier brothers became the first humans to take to the sky in a hot air balloon. People have gloried in this, the most elegant way to fly, ever since.
