PILOTS ANDY ELSON AND COLIN PRESCOT SIT ONBOARD QINETIQ 1 BALLOON
PLATFORM DURING TESTING. 
Balloon pilots Colin Prescot (R) and Andy Elson (L) sit on the Qinetiq
1 flight platform during final testing for a world altitude attempt at
Boscombe Down in Wiltshire, southern England, July 10, 2003. The two
pilots will launch their balloon from a ship off the southern English
coastline in the next two months, when weather conditions are deemed
suitable, and attempt to reach an altitude of 132,000 feet. The flight
platform will be carried aloft by the biggest manned balloon in history
at 1250 feet tall, almost the same height as the Empire State Building.
