The balloon crashed on the Island, with the real Henry Gale as an occupant. He was killed in as yet unknown circumstances, although the survivors have assumed that he was murdered by one of the Others, Ben. Ben subsequently stole his identity. He was buried in a grave next to the crash site.

There is an enclosed gondola with several metal cylinders attached and a hatch on top. The side of the gondola has a decal reading "Minnesota Metallurgy & Mining Co." Under that are the words "Proudly Sponsored By" with decals for Mr. Cluck's Chicken Shack and Nozz-a-La Cola.

The Widmore Labs logo is also seen at the side of the gondola, above the tanks.

The balloon itself is red with a smiley face logo on the side, which is very similar to the smiley face button from the graphic novel Watchmen, which the writers have expressed an appreciation for in past interviews.
