Saturday morning, 8th August 2009


As the early morning mist cleared to reveal the start of a beautiful day, thirty two passengers arrived for check in at the launch site in Norwich, Norfolk.


Together with friends and family, passengers listened to the launch site safety briefing, before climbing into the basket for their pre flight briefings.


Once completed, both G- CENX and G-CDHL was prepared and soon ready to welcome passengers back on board for the start of their morning hot air balloon trip over Norfolk.


Both balloons flew in a southerly direction out of the city of Norwich and towards the Norfolk villages of Ketteringham, Swardeston, Mulbarton and Newton Flotman.


Continuing passengers enjoyed the wonderful array of colours that the countryside has to offer before both balloons landed in stubble fields in Tasburgh.


With permission gained from the land owner both balloons were soon packed away and the flight was then toasted with either a chilled glass of champagne or orange juice.


Mike Goodson who flew with his wife in G-CENX said, "Absolutely brilliant - well worth getting up at 5:00 am for."


When we returned back to the office this e-mail was already waiting for us from Mr and Mrs Wilkie who had flown in G-CDHL, "Hi there Jules Just wanted to say what a fantastic flight we had this morning (Sat 8th August). We were so lucky that the weather was just right for our first attempt. A great way to start my 60th birthday celebrations! We congratulate you on your very impressive setup - slick and professional. Many thanks to everyone concerned."
