Bloat can be a bad and dangerous thing. A friend of mine got his pilot's license a few years back, and we began planning a trip flying from Denver to the Albuquerque balloon festival. On the appointed day, four of us met at the airport. After loading luggage in the rental single-engine Cessna 172, Dave and our respective fiancés climbed aboard and accelerated down the runway. Denver sits on a plateau about 5,000 feet above sea level, so the air is notoriously thin. Three quarters of the way down the runway, and now traveling at 80 miles per hour, the plane started to fishtail. Dave was suddenly applying the brakes. "She doesn't want to do it folks; we're going back." It turned out that the plane was overloaded for that altitude, and it wouldn't achieve liftoff.
