Suleiyman The Magnificent In The Air

The first time I saw this I nearly fell over. It was in the air and I couldn't believe my eyes. The Multi-Millionaire Malcolm Forbes had this hot-air balloon built for a visit he made to Turkey. It has made appearances at balloon festivals throughout the world. It depicts Suleiyman The Magnificent. 1495 – 1566 Sultan of the Ottoman Empire

There's a good brief bio of him here.
