Hot air balloons are inflated in a field. Men, some in Nazi uniforms, help to pull out balloon envelope before inflation. Balloons are inflated with hot air, ballast is added. Good shots of the balloons and baskets slowly rising into the air. Views of the crowd looking on. Shots of several balloons taking off. They are presumably taking part in a Gordon Bennett sponsored hot air balloon race.
