A Large Balloon Ride
On September 1st and 2nd there was a double celebration in Almetyevsk: the City Day and the Oilman’s Day.
In accordance to the plan of our colleagues from Bastrigin Brothers we created the main decorate - a large aerostat of 6 meters diameter. The balloon raised a fearless artist to 10 meters above the ground.
As there was no any opportunity for additional protection and the man was raised up due to a lifting power of aerostat we designed a reinforced fastening system.
It allowed to raise and lower a person freely using an electric winch.
