I attended a couple of launches at the recent British National Ballooning Competition; one early morning, on a cut barley field and one late evening, on a golf fairway. I will be posting photos over the next few days and both sessions will be mixed together. These photos are to show how the balloons get from ground to air as most of us just see them in the sky.
The Baskets are different to the ones used for leisure flights being smaller and lighter. They can take 1-2 people but mostly piloted by 1 person.

I have posted about my Ballooning adventure ( or not!) over on my other blog 1500 Saturdays and you can view that by clicking on this title Early Morning Balloon Chasing.
