Program: The Flying Allens: New York Balloonists for more than 100 Years


2016 The Flying Allens by Greg Livadas updated

 

From the Genesee County Express Nov 3 1983…

1903: Ira Allen made a balloon ascension at the Horse Trader’s convention in Nunda recently. According to the papers, he has made 1,543 ascensions since 1867, an average of about 43 a year for 36 years. Pretty good record for Ira.
