First flight of Tango

This morning saw the first flight of Tango since we bought it. We had no idea how it would fly so we flew with just the pilot and 2 passengers. We decided to go for a very early morning flight from Ashton Court, which would take us straight across the city.
There were a few other balloons flying alongside us, and it was a great morning to get in the air. As soon as we took off we played around the bowl field in Ashton Court, before climbing up to 1,200ft and flying across Bristol.
Taking in sites such as Cabot Circus and the SS Great Britain, we continued over the bottom of the M32 and made an approach into Eastville Park. We popped back up and then flew on until we saw a great looking park in Frenchay. Slowly coming in to land, Tango flies so well that it was difficult to land! A great purchase, and we look forward to flying her more and more over the coming years.
