Crucial to any inflation or flight of the U.S. Flag Balloon: 


Thanks to all of the hardy volunteer crew from PNC Bank. We couldn't have done it without you.

The other critical thing needed on a day like today:




John is showing Rosemary how to hold the mouth of the balloon open before Barry starts putting the fire in the balloon. Rosemary is quite the crew goddess.



Rosemary seen here holding the flag.

All by herself.

Ray- Ballast man.
