This evening we had a rare opportunity to see Stanford battle area in Norfolk from the air in one of our hot air balloons. Our passengers on that day were primarily from west Norfolk. The balloon Flight launched from Thetford rugby club at 6.20 p.m. and climbed out to 2,500′ the visibility was very good. You could see Ely cathedral out to the west and Norwich the east. The whole Norfolk coastline was in clear view. We flew gently on towards Wymondham. The balloon landed at Deopham Green in an oilseed rape stubble field.
