We are thrilled to have recently built a Z-90, to promote Disney’s movie “Oz the Great and Powerful“. The balloon made it’s maiden flight in Perris, CA on February 10th, 2013. It then was a major focal point as it was tethered on Hollywood Blvd (see photo below) at the end of the green carpet during the Hollywood premiere of the movie. The balloon also “delivered” actor James Franco to Jimmy Kimmel Live later that same evening. From there the balloon made stops at Disneyland, the Daytona 500, HSN, and Central Park in New York City. The bright blue “Montgolfier” inspired balloon features three huge inkjet printed logos, red bunting, and a skirt complete with fringe and inkjet printed hashtag’s and premiere date.

The balloon is operated by Lighter than Air America, and is being piloted by Scott and Laurie Spencer.
