The late afternoon hot air balloon flight of Saturday 4th September


Conditions were forecast to be suitable for hot air ballooning this afternoon so our passengers and their spectators made their way to our launch site on Bluebell Road in Norwich. 


Both our hot air balloons G-CENX and G-CDHL were filled with cold air, making for some colourful photo opportunities as the large dome shapes lay on the ground before the burners were lit and the air heated. Our large blue balloon was the first to stand proudly above her basket  shortly followed by our yellow balloon. Passengers were called to board and with the final checks complete the balloons rose gracefully into the late afternoon sky. 


With a south easterly wind direction passengers enjoyed views to the west of Norwich before heading out over the Norfolk Countryside. Our balloons made their way silently over the villages of Easton and Hockering before our blue balloon landed first on a  stubble field in the village of Elsing and then shortly afterwards our yellow balloon landed on a stubble field in the village of Billingford.


Travelling in our blue balloon Kerry Monk had this to say about her flight ‘Awesome, exciting, unbelievable, breathtaking....fantastic in every way.’


Whilst in our yellow balloon Matt and Rachel Spence said’ We had a very exciting yet calm experience. We were surprised at how quiet it is whilst flying in a balloon, (except when the burner is on). We will definitely recommend this to our friends and family and we will do this again, thanks to all the crew.’


‘Kites and deer and a fairground style bouncy landing in a stubble field - Terrific!’ John, Phil, Sarah, Simon and Anna.


‘Best Christmas present of this year!...and its only September. Smooth take off, bumpy landing but fizz chilled to perfection. Great views on the way and Dan steered us perfectly”  Ian - Norwich Puppet Theatre and Trev  - Robert Kett Junior School.
