Surprise Landings

So there we were, sitting watching the TV, when I hear a weird noise from outside. Stepping out into the garden, this is what we saw, a Virgin hot air balloon coming down rather quickly. These pictures show the view as it went over and came to rest on the garrison sports field, amazingly coming down in the relatively small space between the tree lined road and the rugby posts. Considering that a few metres short on the other side of the road he would have been coming down onto the Penrose Park housing estate, and the rest of the sports field has regularly spaced rugby posts along it’s length, it was a pretty impressive bit of piloting.
