This is an original press photo. Balloonist Bob Sparks and his ground crew prepared his 70 foot tall hot air balloon for liftoff from Mitchell Field Wednesday. After inflating, the balloon gracefully lifted off from the field and Sparks, of Gladstone, New Jersey, began his four hour flight across Lake Michigan. He landed near the Village of Whitehall, about 10 miles north of Muskegon. Sparks, who already had crossed Lake Superior, expects to cross all five Great Lakes, one at a time. After landing safely, Sparks said he will attempt Lake Huron Thursday, weather permitting. Photo measures 5.5 x 10.25inches. Photo is dated 05-29-1975.
