Supporting the people of Ukraine

Balloon 721 near South Pier on 28th June 2002, still waiting for the fleet numbers to be applied
It seemed like an appropriate time to raid the archives and post some photos of Balloon 721 in its Michelin advert livery. The blue and yellow scheme, coincidentally also the colours of the Ukrainian flag, was a very eye catching overall advert 20 years ago.

  2. The colour of 674 & 684 was more like purple, but 726 was blue and yellow in its HM Coastguard livery.
