Cool timelapse of a recent, very fun ride. Check it out!
Yesterday morning we hosted a fabulous wedding. This was supposed to have been a 3 balloon flight down the valley. But the weather said Nope, with fog and 300 foot solid overcast til noon. Since this was such a big deal, I offered the option to put the balloons up on tether lines, which was the only thing we could do with them and the couple decided that this was better than nothing. And it turned out great. We’ll have pix from the ground shortly but meanwhile, here’s a good look at the festivities!
This couple booked the private romance aloft flight and she said “Yes”! We’re all happy to have finally found a flyable evening after all the wind we’ve had lately.
We went almost 10 miles on this ride, a few longer than average!
When the weather is nice around here, it’s very, very nice!
We made a timelapse of a very cool backwards-from-the-usual-wind-direction ride from the other morning. You can really see the altitude adjustments we had to make in order to find the wind directions that would let us land at the airport from 6 miles away in an aircraft that doesn’t steer.
Check it out!
It’s hard to do this maneuver while holding a phone to record the fun. So this clip just shows the very tail end of what was one of the longest splashndashes of the season. Our passengers got a real treat on this flight! ?
