Friday morning, 14th August, 2009


As dawn broke and the sun began to rise in the sky, the City of Norwich began to stir. Sixteen excited aerial adventurers made their way to our launch site on Bluebell Road, Norwich. For many of the passengers their Champagne Hot Air Balloon Flight would have been given as a gift for a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion. Others may well have wanted to treat themselves but all would agree it was something that they all wanted to do.


An hour after the meeting time our yellow balloon, G-CDHL lifted her passengers gracefully into the sky and headed off in a north westerley direction leaving the City of Norwich behind. Heading out over the countryside the sprawling fields spread out like a patchwork quilt below, with the many different colours of green, brown and the yellow gold of the corn fields most having been harvested. Bales of straw standing like cotton reels.


Passengers enjoyed views over the suburbs of Hellesdon, Taverham and Drayton before heading out over the villages of Felthorpe, Swannington and Brandiston. Landing on a stubble field between Eastgate and Cawston, Angela Quantrill said “it was very well organised, it’ s been really good, a fantastic experience”
