The Balloon Flight Pioneer – Jean Pierre

Jean-Pierre Blanchard lived between 1753 to 1809, and he was best known as the “Balloon Flight Pioneer”. Or as some call it a ‘ballooning’ pioneer. ‘Ballooning’ is such an awesome word. He is also the first person to cross the English Channel via balloon!

Wikipedia has much more information on Jean-Pierre. The rest of this post will be images I found relating to him and his inventions! I hope seeing these lifts your spirit. hehe
