“That was absolutely fantastic, I couldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams that it would be as good as it was’’ the morning flight of Sunday 8th November 2009

 

With the main flying season finishing just a week ago our winter standby service swung into action. Unlike other operators who cease to operate during the winter months Broadland Balloon Flights offer a winter standby service which is free to join.

 

Passengers and spectators gathered together on this crisp, clear late Autumn morning for their aerial adventure. One such passenger, Mr Fred White, was here to celebrate his 80th Birthday and had brought many of his family along to watch.

 

With the safety briefing complete, passengers and spectators helped the crew to prepare the envelope and pulled the fabric out into a large round shape as she lay on the ground. Filling G-CENX with cold air she soon took on her enormous size before the air was heated and she lifted into the air standing proudly above her basket.

 

Passengers were called to board and once on board were given a final briefing before G-CENX lifted into the morning sky. Rising high into the air passengers enjoyed exquisite views of our fine city of Norwich. Powered only by the wind C-CENX moved silently across the Norfolk countryside, with an occasional blast of the burners to break the silence. As our aerial adventures travelled over the villages of Marlingford and East Tuddenham the sun illuminated the autumn colour spectacular to provide some fantastic photo opportunities.

 

As G-CENX made her decent she passed over many of the spectators who had followed by road and could be seen waving and shouting “hello”. Just before the town of East Dereham G-CENX landed on a stubble field. “That was absolutely fantastic, I couldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams that it would be as good as it was’’ said Fred White.

 

Toasting the flight with a glass of chilled Champagne or fruit juice passengers were presented with their commemorative certificate before heading home having had the experience of their lives.
