GERMANY: 1910 Bavarian Augsburger Verein fuer Luftschiffahrt/Aero Club of Augsburg postcard with Balloon illustration on reverse, sent to Melbourne with Arms 20pf tied 'BAEUMENHEIM/19/OCT/10' cds, a couple of corner creases. Lengthy message in English reads "Our first ascension in a ballon with Hylda was Frankfurt from 10am to 5pm. We landed on top of a tree. Then went up again to land balloon very smoothly in a field." The only recorded example to Australia, and surely the earliest aerial 'incident' en route to Australia.
