This evening our balloon trip launched from Eccles Hall School, which is located adjacent to the Snetterton race circuit in Norfolk. The wind had eased down to a gentle southwesterly with the cloud melting away. A quick call to air traffic control at Norwich airport confirmed we had ideal conditions for ballooning. Aloft just after 6pm we ascended to 3300 feet above sea level to enjoy clear views over the county of Norfolk. The city of Norwich and Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk were well defined. It is always fascinating how noise travels the cars at Snetterton were making quite a din as they charged around the track beneath us. The hot air balloon drifted across the busy market town of Attleborough and out towards Deopham were we start our decent. Three children are trying to follow on their bicycles but soon give up the chase and waive us on. Our retrieve crew are close on hand with quite a number of family members following in their cars. We eventually land the balloon in the parish of Hackford after just over an hour in the air.
