24 Hours of Flight

Our "heros of the skies" have been flying for 24 hours.

It's midnight in Bristol, 24 hours since the fantastic launch of 20 gas balloons from the Oakham Treasures' site in Easter Compton.

Phil Dunnington has joined us in the Flight Control room to do the "night shift".

Olli Luoma & Markku Sipinen (OH-OCO) from Finland called in at 23.00 hours to say they had landed in a very large cornfield after a fantastic flight. Olli & Markku have flown over 800kms in about 23 hours. Their crew were just 5 minutes away ~ lets hope they have some good lights for packing away.
