Close encounters of the balloon kind….

Balloon over Abingdon

Sometimes its necessary to SHARE airspace! Here we see a hot-air balloon over an industrial estate near Abingdon, UK. We were enjoying an early morning flight in a rare Chrislea CH.3 Super Ace.  From this angle, the individual gores of the balloon are easily visible. Hot-air balloons are ideal vehicles for corporate advertising, as well as ‘team building’ activities. Atmospheric conditions are at their best for ballooning either in the early morning or in the evening – just as they were for the very earliest of aeroplanes. Live and let live, I say!
