This evening our balloon flight launched from Werrington Sports Centre in the city of Peterborough It was a beautiful evening with not a cloud in the sky and a gentle breeze coming from the southwest Our passengers were well supported with several family members arriving to watch the hot air balloon take to the skies At 6.30 pm we were airborne amidst shouts and cheers from our attentive audience We quickly climbed out to 1000 feet and could see right across the wash with the faint line of the cliffs at Hunstanton in view Any way onwards and upwards A radio call to our ground crew keeps them informed of our overall direction. We drift past the wind turbines at Deeping St Nicholas turning slowly in the gentle breeze. The hot air balloon drifts over the town of Spalding with the coast and Boston in view. After an hour we are back on Terra Firma celebrating our flight with a glass of champagne watching a stunning Lincolnshire sunset
Dear Robert Alan & Terry
Thank you all for a truly memorable balloon flight from Peterborough. My husband was absolutely full of it when he got home a very happy bunny. It was the ideal birthday present for him, It was lovely you took time with my family and children who came to watch and made them feel part of the adventure.
