 "Voyager Titan" is a Storm class Aerostat of unique construction built by the AMBalloons Works corporation for the Royal Expeditionary Society of London.

Measuring 13,198 Imperial Gallons in volume the balloon here is seen on the testing grounds undergoing net rigging.

The aircraft has experienced a long and successful career including a series of adventures to the far north, and to the eastern edges of the known world.

The results can be seen across the surface to the envelope, which carries many war scars.
