    The first air balloon with two passengers in its basket was launched from a Paris suburb on November 21, 1783. The first balloon launch in Russia came exactly 20 years after the French debut. In the mid-20th century ballooning was no longer popular in Russia - almost no military balloons had been in use after World War II. But today ballooning is a recreational activity for hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
