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 me, Pilot Lindsay and 13 other passengers for a 6.30 am launch from Battlefields in Shrewsbury.

Words can only tell you so much, so feast your eyes on our gallery of flight photos.

After the flight, we treated ourselves to some bacon butties at Sparrows 1403 cafe at the Battlefields farm shop. 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.
