15 June, Blaise Castle, Royal Victoria Park & Ashton Court PM
5 balloon teams arrived in Ashton Court at the start of the evening. They were the Airship & Balloon Company with G-BTHF, S.M Gauge Company (JHA), Bristol Balloons' Torex, Above + Beyond and Gone with the Wind with their Cameron V-65. Everyone except Bristol Balloons decided to move to Blaise Castle because of the wind direction. They all took off with G-JHAA being the first to lift. Above + Beyond landed at the Durdham Downs with G-BTHF. The other 2 balloons flew on.
Torex flew from Ashton Court and landed somewhere around Bishopsworth. We also think that Cameron Balloons were at Ashton Court in the fiesta field flying their ultralight hopper, G-CIJJ.
Royal Victoria Park
The usual ride balloons took off from central Bath. These were Virgin, Bailey Balloons with Red Letter Days and the Ballooning Network with Bath Building Society. Photos: Twitter
