Anakin Skywalker took on a rather more sinister air once the black helmet of Darth Vader covered his face and that all-too-familiar heavy breathing ensued.  And here’s a sight that would surely raise the hackles of any modern day Jedi Knight, as the dark lord of the Sith takes to the sky in the form of a massive hot air balloon.  Vader is seen here at the 2002 Guanajuato International Air Balloon Festival, Mexico.  The image below shows a more recent ballooning festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
