Allearsnet posted more photos of the dock & balloon. One interesting thing I didn’t realize was that it’s going to be “OPERATED by Aerophile.” I wonder what’s involved in operation this that Disney CMs won’t be used to operate it? Is it just the physics of weight loading & dangers involved in syncronization of release & weather conditions? Or, am I misreading that & Aerophile may just be operating it financially or something?
Anyway, I know it may not be complete yet but these photos seem awfully sparse. The dock looks completely boring and where the heck is the basket that people stand in?

OH and if anyone is interested in what the finished product may look like; this is the one already operating in Disneyland Paris. It kinda looks like guests are in a ‘cage’ type of enclosure & the loading/landing dock looks just as boring. :laugh:
Sooo, what time of day would you try to do Aerophile? I wonder if its open for sunrise? How gorgeous would that be! I think I would try for sunset.
