The Terra Cirrus is the second of two original hot air balloons manufactured by Terra Aeronautics.


Released in May 2009, the Terra Cirrus was designed as a replacement for Terra Aeronautics' ageing 2006 Terra Wind Rider. Constructed with sculpted prims, the Cirrus is a hot air balloon consisting of a single-layered, fabric gas bag, attached to a basket for carrying passengers. Mounted above the basket is the "burner", which injects an animated flame into the envelope.
