The Intrepid Takes to the Air!

As you approach South Field, the home of the Intrepid, you round a row of trees to see the reconstructed Civil War balloon standing tall, ready to take flight.
As was the case during the War, General George McClellan watches over the field from the side of the Intrepid.

The Intrepid goes aloft with Balloonist Chris Lynn.
