Balloon teams began to arrive at 6am in Ashton Court for the fourth flyable slot in a row. Pattersons, flown by First Flight, were first up and to start with the were travelling in the direction of Filton. Then they completely changed direction and flew over Kingswood. Bailey Balloons with G-CDIH were second to take off, heading towards Downend. A new balloon was also there this morning, G-CIND, and we will be seeing this one fly throughout the rest of the 2015 ballooning season. G-OJEN took off also, but lots later than the others. It was over Fishponds at 8:50am - see photo on Twitter HERE.
