British Balloon Museum & Library Inflation Days
Every two years the British Balloon Museum & Library (BBM&L) hold an inflation day at Lakeside Lodge in Pidley, Cambridgeshire which attracts balloonists from around the UK and Europe. Here are some photos thanks to Christoff Deyaert of some of the more recent inflation days, including 2016 where special shapes such as the Piper, Michelin Man, Bells Whiskey, Black Knight and FT newspapers were inflated.
You can view the museum's collection in full on their website, although some appear to be missing. Newest special shape additions to the collection include IKEA, Lloyds TSB and Servo Connectors hopper.
