The group consisted
of a pilot plus two crew members. The Pilot, Debbie Harding,
is a commercial balloon operator that runs a small recreational
flight business in Chester County since 1989. The crew were all
volunteers and were all pretty much regular folk.
The goal of the
expedition was to share this event with grade
schools and children of all ages. This trip was not only fun and
exciting, this trip was also educational. Our plan was always to
allow our local schools to participate in this event through email
and still pictures delivered from the Internet. While doing our
homework as to how much it would cost for what we would need, we
discovered that a woman has yet to fly a balloon to the North Pole.
A first in 1998! Guinness will accept this first with proper
documentation. Our goal then became to give the message to kids that
there are many firsts still out there for those who are willing to
learn about our universe and participate in it.
