Late afternoon hot air balloon flight of Sunday 17th October over Suffolk


Passengers arrived for their hot air balloon flight via the splendid tree lined drive at the Cornwallis Country House Hotel in Suffolk. Once everyone had arrived passengers and spectators listened to the pilot as he delivered the safety briefings for the launch site before taking just the passengers to the basket for a basket briefing. 


With the help of passengers, the ground crew spread our large yellow  hot air balloon G-CDHL out on the ground ready to be inflated. Our large fans soon filled the envelope with cold air before the pilot heated the air and G-CDHL stood proudly above her basket. Passengers were called to board and were soon waving to their family and friends left behind as they rose peacefully into the late afternoon sky. 


Heading in a south easterly direction passengers enjoyed superb aerial views of the Suffolk countryside travelling over the villages of Eye, Occold and  Redingfield before landing in a field at Bedfield.


Having followed behind the retrieval crew by way of the road, friends and family rejoined the passengers as they toasted the flight in the traditional manner with a glass of Champagne or fruit juice before being presented with their commemorative certificate by their pilot. 


Talking of their experience Brenda and Robin Shortell said “Absolutely Fabulous, exceeding all our expectation.”


“A wonderful day truly a champagne day” Jean and Allan Lipscombe.


“ A wonderful experience floating above the clouds and we could see out to sea” Doreen Hatherley.


“A truly magical experience” Victoria and Andrea.
