G-CGIS Action Man Special Shape
Owner: Matt Joyce
C of A Status: TETHER ONLY
Lights, Camera, ACTION MAN! The greatest balloon of them all... Built by Cameron Balloons in 1997, this superhero has come home to Bristol!
Parachutist-110 G-CGIS is regarded as one of the greatest special shape balloons ever built, operated by Virgin Airship & Balloon Company in the 1990s. On the commercial circuit for 3 years, Action Man graced the UK skies attending all the major balloon events. 10 years later he was owned in Germany, and we have such great memories watching Gaby, Karl and team fly from Bristol in 2012. It means an awful lot to have Action Man in our collection.
Now retired from flying, Action Man has joined the MJ Ballooning fleet for his final special mission in his home city...
