Friday evening 8th August 2008


It was a cloudy, windy start to Friday 8th August 2008, many passengers were surprised at check in when they were told that forecasters were suggesting that conditions were likely to be suitable for ballooning that evening.  And they were right as both of our hot air balloons took to the skies!


One such passenger Ros Gouldby said ‘I was in the garden busy pruning and my husband was down at the yard tinkering with his boat. Suddenly it was all systems go. I  have to admit I was a bit apprehensive, but I needn’t have been. We had a fantastic flight, it was brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed it’. 


G-CDHL and G-CENX rose majestically from our launch site on Bluebell Road in Norwich in a south easterly direction passing over the villages of Swainsthorpe and Saxlingham Nethergate before landing on different stubble fields at Hempnall. 


Passengers toasted the flight in the traditional manner with Champagne, orange juice or a mixture of the two before being presented with their commemorative certificate. As the sun set passengers made their way home with some great photos and some fantastic memories.
