Following the wind

Balloon Film: One gained one’s PPL (Balloons) in June 2000, and is rather embarrassingly proud of the fact. Forgive me. Since 2000 one has had hot-air balloon adventures in a number of countries, but this film was made at the “Grass Roots” Hot-Air Balloon Meet at Sackville Farm and Airstrip in Bedfordshire in 2008. It aims to give a basic introduction to the joys of ballooning, to inspire more young people to take up the sport and, hopefully, to allay the fears of some farmers that balloon pilots are marauding airborne hooligans whose sole objective is to drop from the sky and demolish their livelihoods. One likes to think the film achieves its goals. It is due to be broadcast on Sky TV in 2010.
