Morning hot air balloon flight of Saturday 17th April

 

Once again we scheduled an extra basket for the morning of Saturday 17th April 2010, as our forecasters were suggesting that the weather would be suitable for hot air ballooning.

The excited passengers arrived at the launchsite on Bluebell Road, Norwich at 06:30 when the launchsite safety briefing commenced. Once this was heard, G-CENX and G-CDHL were pulled off the trailer and prepared for flight, and the passengers received their flight safety briefing in the hot air balloon baskets.

 

After waiting for some weather conditions to stabilize, both balloons soared majestically into the skies, embarking upon yet another fantastical hot air balloon journey over the beautiful county of Norfolk.

 

Drifting in a north-easterly direction, the thirty two aerial adventurors were first presented a magnificent view of the historic city of Norwich, providing a totally unique perspective. They continued in this direction, passing over the more rural, picturesque areas outside of the city, offering a contrast in view but not in beauty. G-CENX came back down to the ground at Peaham, and G-CDHL in the Norfolk village of Panxworth.

 

Once the balloon was packed away the flight was toasted with a glass of chilled Champagne (or orange juice), and the newly fledged aeronauts reflected on the experience of a lifetime they had just been a part of.

 

“A fantastic experience for myself and my wife, who is normally terrified of heights, but thouroughly enjoyed it. To look down on a Norfolk morning as we sailed serenely over Norwich was just spectacular. All of the crew were very friendly and made our flight very memorable” Aubrey Warren.

 

“Thoroughly professional crew, but with lots of humour and fun in there as well. We felt safe and had the best morning ever!” Sara Rowland.
