UP Cluster Balloons above Philly! Thursday, May 28th
Crew Chief and organizer of volunteers: Jon Radowski
Event Complete! Launch Successful!
~Citizen's Bank Park~
After a two-day weather delay, we were able to launch the UP Cluster balloon system at Citizen's Bank Park, home of the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies! Also home of....the Philly Phanatic! A *previously* flightless bird, and mascot of the team.
We say 'previously' flightless because as of May 28th, the Phanatic has taken to the air! He became a cluster balloon aeronaut beneath a cluster of 60 helium filled balloons, with his ball park directly behind him. Thank you to everyone who weathered the delay with us, and sent this system UP!
