Balloons Burners & Brilliance

17 March 2016: The sky was a buzz with the sound of blasting burners breaking the morning silence in Canberra. Balloons were lighting up the early morning sky, baskets were dripping water after their ‘Splash & Dash’ or I should be saying ‘Sail & Drift’. We had single and double chair balloons dropping down from great height at a rapid rate of knots only to pull up with pin point precision and calmly ‘Sail & Drift’ on the waters surface. The balloons always create such a happy and enjoyable environment for everyone to experience.  It was a brilliant spectacle and a true indication of how skilful the pilots are that fly these balloons. Do yourself a huge favour and make sure you experience this as you will be talking about it for ages.
