Today I have two fun snapshots, dated "June 1962" (though they were actually shot during Easter of that year) featuring "La Coquette", the wonderful seven-story tall hot air balloon that had become famous when it was used in Mike Todd's 1956 hit film, "Around the World in Eighty Days" starring David Niven and Cantinflas.
I love this shot of the balloon as it continues to rise near the Matterhorn (I think I can make out the red shirt of a climber on top of the mountain). Imagine being a kid, watching that huge aircraft get smaller and smaller. I know I would have wanted to watch it until it couldn't be seen anymore - just like when I accidentally let go of my regular-sized balloons.
For more info and pictures about La Coquette, Daveland did a wonderful post a few years ago. You should definitely check it out!
