Are you a Star Wars fanatic? Check out this Darth Vadar hot air balloon created by Benoît Lambert, a skilled balloonist. "For me, it was more of a joke and a fantasy, but Nicolas took it seriously and found the idea wonderful," Lambert says. "He made contact with Lucasfilm in order to try to get their agreement." This Hot air balloon was built with his own funds, measuring 26 meters (86 feet) high with the basket included, 21 meters (69 feet) wide and with a depth of 24 meters (78 feet). It can carry two passengers and a pilot.
