Flying with a Balloon on Saturday 18th


Recommended Posts

Had a great flight on Saturday from Barry's field. 79km round trip in 1hr56 mins. A personal record on both distance and flight time. Great weather - bring on the summer for some more decent x-country (without thick gloves and down jacket)!

Saw this balloon on my trip.

Cool pics, Peter that looks it's over Hurtmere golf course ;)

Yes - there are lots of golf courses around there so well spotted - or did you check the metadata on the photo (stamped with GPS coords by my iPhone thanks to the kind people at Apple)?

Here is the route I flew:


I caught up with the balloon again near Hankley Common (and...yes, I did check that the DZ was not active - as I guess the balloon did too).

I never thought that I would say it but parts of Surrey are truly beautiful!
