Registration Markings of Australian Balloons

Australian manned free balloons are registered on the Australian Register. This page provides an example by way of illustration of how the marking system appears in practice.


Above: Kavanagh D-84 VH-NUG (cn KB223) demonstrates the style of markings for a manned free balloon. Two sets of registration markings are required, on opposite sides of the envelope and as near as possible to the point of maximum cross-section. This balloon was first registered on 20 January 2000 and is seen here taking part in a 'night glow' at the Narromine Airshow on 29 September 2007.
