Abstract

The Italian Vincenzo Lunardi carried out the first manned balloon ascent in England on 15 September 1784. He was one of the most prominent balloonists during the 1780s in Britain, but today, he is only known as a minor historical character, although he was a celebrity during the early years of flight.
