Balloon ascent by M Charles from the Prairie de Nesle, northern France, where it had landed after taking off from the Tuileries Gardens, Paris, on 1 December 1783. Seen here ascending for the second time. M Robert, who accompanied Charles from Paris, can be seen on the ground with others, waving. It was the first hydrogen balloon flight.

Balloon descent at Gonesse, France

The first trial hydrogen balloon which ascended from the Champ de Mars, and descended in the village of Gonesse, north east of Paris. Writhing with the slow expulsion of its malodorous impure hydrogen, it terrified the inhabitants, who attacked it with guns and pitchforks, and tied it to the tail of a horse which they drove off over the field.
