Natchez, Mississippi

A fantastic flight with another old friend Eddie Ray flying over Vidalia, Louisiana. We took off from the levy of the mighty Mississippi on the north west side of the town and landed 30 feet from the mighty Mississippi on the south west side of the town. "Incredible flight! Couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day!" - Eddie Ray

Following breakfast, Glen Moyer, international rock star, balloonist and Scottish tourism office PR manager arrived. Glen is helping with logistics this end and it was great to have him here for our big reveal. Ultramagic were kind enough to support us in several ways and one of them was sending over the banner with our project logo… So carefully unpacking and installing before a thermic gusty inflation to get our quintessential picture in front of Dunleith which is fast becoming an annual event.

So here it is for the first time - the banner which we will have on the balloon as we tour the US over the next four weeks and see just how many states we can fly in. Now if someone could please just switch off the wind machines????
