STEVE FOSSETT'S TEAM PREPARE BALLOON OUTSIDE THEIR HANGER IN NORTHAM.
Members of American millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett's crew hold a
meeting next to the capsule outside their hanger at Northam airport,
located 100 kilometres east of Perth, July 29, 2001, as they make
preparations for Fossett's solo around-the-world ballooning attempt.
Fossett is making his sixth attempt to complete the first solo
circumnavigation of the Earth, andhis latest effort comes nearly two
months after his attempt to launch from Kalgoorlie ended when a gust of
wind ripped the balloon apart.
