Hot Air Balloon Flight

Hot Air Balloon Flight I was lucky enough to go on a Balloon flight with Virgin Balloon Flights in the early hours of Sunday 27th May 2012. This was an early start for a Sunday morning with arrival at the launch site at 6.30. The balloon was soon up and we were airbourne with the slightest of roars from the burners. Gliding west out of Basingstoke, out over the North Hampshire country side, I took this panorama from within the basket showing the cramped conditions when you have 17 people in one Balloon basket. But the whole trip was amazing, expertly piloted by Mark Shemilt who was fully of useful information and stories. I'd highly recommend a flight to anyone!

The route was tracked through GPS and can be seen here.
