We’ve been in Scotland showcasing Amnesty International’s celebratory banner on one of our lovely hot air balloon baskets with pilot Brad Smith.

Our beautiful Perth City Centre launch site was home to our basket for the morning with Pilot Brad on hand to hand out leaflets and talk ballooning. With lots of interest from local people, we met a wee Scotsman eager to see what the basket looked like.

Two-year-old Craig Laing, who lives in Perth, was visiting the North Inch open fields to feed the ducks with Grandma Etta Laing. We couldn’t possibly let him leave without a miniature Virgin balloon and a certificate signed by pilot Brad and endorsed by Sir Richard Branson.

Let’s hope the Perthshire winds don’t take Craig and his bike to the skies!
