Union Jack Hot Air Balloon
Gadget: Union Jack Hot Air Balloon
Status: Stored at Q-Branch
The hot air balloon which was piloted by Q was patriotically
painted with a huge Union Jack.
The hot air balloon was used to transport Bond to a battle at
the monsoon palace between Khan's army and Octopussy's bodyguards.
As Q lowered the basket 007 jumped out a rescued Octopussy as
Q landed the basket on top of a gunman crushing him to death.
When Q got out of the basket he was surrounded by a group of beautiful
women who thanked him affectionately, Q waved them away saying
"Stop that, not now... Later, Perhaps!".
The Hot Air balloon was quite standard except for a closed circuit
camera for viewing below the basket.
