Balloon record bid.

A MODEL hot-air balloon will be flown inside a full-sized version at a festival in Llangollen next month.

For the first time in the UK, organisers at the Hot Air Balloon festival are planning to fly the tiny balloon inside the envelope of one at full size.

Festival director David Green and organiser Andy Marshall hatched the idea for the event at the three-day festival, which starts on September 4 in the Royal International Pavilion at 6pm.

The pair have warmed up for the event by flying Andy's model balloon inside David's 60,000 cubic foot monster indoors.

Andy said: "It's never been done indoors but maybe that's because there isn't such a good venue for model hot-air balloons as the Pavilion."
