Our first flight of the season from the recreation ground in Stowmarket. The balloon launched just after 4.00 pm. We had a good crowd of family members to watch the balloon lift. It was a lovely afternoon with good visibility and a gentle wind coming from the east. Once above 1,000 feet the coast was in clear view with Ipswich and Harwich docks. We drifted away from the town over the villages of Great Finborough and Buxhall. We remained north of Wattisham eventually landing in the parish of Bideston after an hour in the air.
Just to say that we are very satisfied with the way Mr Robert Keron made our balloon flight on 04/03/2011 a memorable and most enjoyable experience.
He could have cancelled our flight at Flynn Valley Ipswich; but he moved the flight to another site at Stowmarket.
That was very considerate especially we had had so many cancellations that past 12 months. He was most professional and dedicated to the groups’ safety and enjoyment.
He is definitely an excellent pilot and team leader. Please convey our compliments to him.
