Summer is here! The evening flight of Wednesday 1st July


Passengers and spectators eagerly gathered on the launch site on Bluebell Road in Norwich for their hot air balloon flight on this glorious summer evening. Passengers listened carefully to their pilot as he delivered the safety briefings and explained the landing phase.


As the wind decreased and the pilot was happy with the weather preparations for flight got under way. Filling with cold air G-CENX took on her gigantic size before the air was heated and she stood proudly above her basket. Passengers were soon aboard as final checks were carried out and with a blast from the burners G-CENX was soon airborne and heading in a south westerly direction.


Being frightened of heights Christine Annis was apprehensive but said “The whole experience was wonderful, I wasn’t a bit frightened it was so peaceful and quiet. My family followed by way of the road and enjoyed chasing across the countryside and took some fantastic photos.”


Travelling over the Norfolk countryside passengers enjoyed views of the villages of High Green, Carleton Forehoe, Barnham Broom before landing in a pasture field in the village of Thuxton.


When the ground crew retrieved the balloon and passengers and spectators were reunited passengers enjoyed their champagne or fruit juice by light of the Land Rover, making the experience all the more magical.
