The morning hot air balloon ride over Norfolk on Saturday 10th July


Passengers awoke to a beautiful Saturday morning and together with their friends and family arrived at the launch site on Bluebell Road in Norwich to begin their hot air balloon ride over Norfolk.


With briefings completed, hot air balloon G-CENX was soon ready for flight and at 06:15 took gently to the skies above Norwich.


Flying in a north easterly direction, passengers were treated to spectacular views of the city of Norwich before heading out to the surrounding Norfolk villages of Trowse, Postwick. Brundall and Lingwood.


Just over an hour after taking off, the balloon landed on a narrow track in Halvergate, which required some precise driving by the crew in order not to damage the crop either side of the track.


Once everything was packed away, passengers were reunited with their followers as they toasted the flight in the traditional manner with a glass of chilled champagne or fruit juice.


"Well done with the reversing Jules, it's not true what they say about women drivers! Great fun, many thanks!" Eric Wilson.


"Finally, it was fantastic, and the landing was such a giggle.  Looking forward to the next time, thank you team." Sharon.


"Amazing experience, worth waiting for.  Let's take off again now!  We will never forget it especially the landing." Ron and Brenda.


"All the staff work amazingly hard, Mel, Jules (amazons!), Steve and Dan - all the nicest of people!  Thank you for helping me overcome my fear of flying!" Christine Joss.
