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. Pictures of the month
