G-LIPS Special Shape
Owners: Matt Joyce, Tom Balson
One of the last Flying Pictures special shapes, G-LIPS was built by Cameron Balloons in 2000 to promote a new Polaroid camera called Joycam. It's now back in Bristol after over 21 years, having travelled the world to Switzerland, France, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Norway, Sweden and Chile. Since the end of 2001 G-LIPS has mostly been in the UK, but has rarely attended any UK ballooning events.
It's very heavy and hard work, but looks great when inflated and still flies well. We are delighted to have G-LIPS under our ownership and excited for the next few years appearing at selected events plus local appearances around Bristol and Bath.
