The morning hot air balloon trip of Saturday 22nd August 2009


"I have never had so much fun in all my life," Frances Cormack.


"What a fabulous birthday experience. Life and ballooning begins at forty!" Emma Griss


"Worth every penny, what a way to start the day." Deborah and Steve King.


"A surreal experience, when you are up there you feel like you are in another world." Andrew Duffield.


"Just wonderful and so professional, thank you!" Fergus and Jane Anderson.


These were the comments of just a few of our passengers on the morning flight of Saturday 22nd August 2009.


Once the briefings had been completed, both G-CENX and G-CDHL were soon prepared, with the keen help of our passengers, for flight. And once the passengers had climbed on board their adventure could begin.


Climbing high into the Norfolk skies both balloons flew over our fine city of Norwich. That is the good thing about our location on Bluebell Road, that in no matter which way the wind is blowing, our passengers can always enjoy views of the city.


Continuing their journey over the villages of Whitlingham, Great Plumstead and Witton, both balloons ended their flight in stubble fields in Hemblington.


With the balloons safely packed away ready for their next flight, passengers were reunited with the friends and family who had followed the adventure behind the retrieval crews. While toasting the flight with a glass or two of chilled champagne, or orange juice, passengers were presented with their commemorative flight certificates and many ordered a copy of the in-flight photograph that was taken during their flight as a lasting memory of their aerial adventure.

A couple of days later we received this letter from Mr and Mrs Lewis, two of our passengers on this flight,



"Dear Jules


On the morning of Saturday last, August 22nd, my wife and I took a balloon flight with Broadland Balloons, and I am now writing to say how very, very much we enjoyed this experience.


Everyone that we had contact with, from the person who answered my first telephone enquiry to the mini-bus driver who returned us to the launch site after landing, was extremely polite, pleasant and helpful. I would like to make special mention of Dan, our pilot, whose competence and professionalism was, I felt, truly outstanding.


We hope to be able to repeat the experience in a year or two's time.


Once again, many, many thanks to you all.


With kind regards



Frank Lewis"
