This is a short documentary showcasing how the Project Horus group flew two balloons on the same say back in May 2012. The first, Horus 26, was flown with an Amateur Radio voice repeater on board as part of the WIA Annual National convention which was being held in Mildura that year (about a 6 hour drive from Adelaide, our home base).

The second, and at the time more secret balloon was flown for Adelaide based special effects film production house "Rising Sun Pictures". It carried cameras that were used to capture imagery used to build the special effects shots of the landing sequences in the Hollywood blockbuster movie "Gravity".

I hope you enjoy my little collage of events from that day!
