Wednesday morning saw another birthday celebration at 3,000 feet with both a passenger and crew member celebrating their birthdays with Virgin Balloon Flights.
Kyle Cheney, from Broughton Lincolnshire celebrated his 24th birthday in style with an early morning balloon flight with his partner Zoe. The lucky couple booked the flight specifically for Kyle’s birthday date and got to fly first time with great weather and of course amazing views.
“The balloon ride was actually a gift I bought for my partner’s birthday back in April this year, and we decided it would be a great idea to book it for my birthday so we could celebrate together – best of both,” said Kyle.
It’s hard to choose one favourite part of the flight. It was all great, I did like seeing the balloons reflection when flying over rivers, and the initial awe of taking off and first looking out was pretty breath-taking. I’m glad the weather was as good as it was.”
“Because I really enjoyed it, I would definitely like to do it again. It was very peaceful and tranquil. The pilot and crew were all very helpful and fun; it made the experience even better being able to have a laugh with them.”
On the very same morning crew member Neil was also celebrating his own birthday – a double celebration for that basket! After they had landed and enjoyed their Champagne toast the two birthday boys posed for a photograph.
