The pictures on this page were taken by Bernie Sayers and Rebecca Sayers. The balloon flight was Rebecca's first. She took her first airplane ride the evening before in a Piper J-3. Unfortunately, we didn't have our camera with us for the Piper Cub ride.

The camera used ASA 400 film and cost $5.49.
