Three lucky Virgin Balloon Flights team members got up at the crack of dawn yesterday morning to go on a hot air balloon flight from Shrewsbury. Lynda, our lovely call centre operative and Ben, our operations extraordinaire (and ballooning veteran) joined myself, Pilot Lindsay and 13 other passengers for a 6.30am launch from Battlefields in Shrewsbury. Words can only tell you so much, so feast your eyes on our gallery of flight photos.

It’s a post-flight must-do! Shrewsbury is just one of our five Shropshire launch sites. Book your own West Midlands hot air balloon ride adventure here.
