Here’s an update from Bill on the Bunch of Bees Special Shape Balloon:
“Yesterday Transport Canada was here doing the final inspection for BoB. We are now good to go as we have a Certificate of Airworthiness for the balloon. Let’s hope we have some good weather on the weekend so we can test fly it! I will send out and email as soon when the weather looks good so you can all see what an incredible job we all did… TOGETHER!
Queen Bee update: The Queen now has a head. The main balloon is all cut.
Transport Canada’s Inspector for Amateur Built balloons for eastern Canada has a very busy schedule, and he has booked a date for the queen Bee Inspection: June 20th. This is our deadline to complete the Queen Bee. It has to be done, in the bag, completed with one test inflation on June 20th! Can you hear the sewing machines running?
