Fossil BS: Ballooning tragedy in NZ (22) RE: BS: Ballooning tragedy in NZ 08 Jan 12


Sorry, left out a few letters from the "Gerard A HeiNEken" in post above. This balloon was a promotional tool for the beer, and had a double-decker basket. It carried, I think, up to 10 passengers and 2 crew. As I mentioned, they usually flew it on a tether as it was too big to fly free if there was any chance of a speedy landing, but on the day I flew in it, the wind was a light drift.

We were up for an hour or so and covered about 3 miles of countryside between Mere (Wiltshire, UK) and a village called Milton (something). A really magical experience.
