Welcome to the UK Balloon Register  This website idetails most of the balloons to appear on the UK civil aircraft register. I have tried to make these pages simpler to search than the old site, hopefully you agree.  I am still missing quite a few UK balloons so if you have any photos of balloons not featured in these pages please get in touch, i'd love to add them to the site.



My thanks must go to the many photographers, enthusiasts and owners who have contributed photographs to the site, without you this would not have been possible.  All photos on this site are copyright G Bann or of the various photographers listed and should not be used without prior permission in writing from me. 



To give me an idea of who's been visiting me here or if you just want to tell me what you think of the site, please leave me a message in the guestbook.  Please dont try and sell me services or tell me you can "improve my position in the google rankings" for a fee as i am not interested and those messages are reported as spam.



This site is dedicated to the memory of Michael Clarke, who contributed so many photographs to these pages.
