Hot Air Balloon Team join the thousands at Chatsworth Country Fair

The Group First Hot Air Balloon team joined the East Midlands Balloon Club with flights from the Chatsworth Estate Country Fair at the end of August.

The balloons joined the thousands of visitors at the largest Country Fair in the UK. Unfortunately the weather gods didn’t play fair for the balloons during the weekend – only managing flights on Sunday morning and evening.

The Group First team took part in the Sunday morning launch heading out of the Estate over the gardens heading towards Beeley Moor. With expected rain chasing the balloons, a quick flight was undertaken by the team – the rain missed the event and the balloons.

The team was one of only a handful of balloons who flew again on Sunday evening as part of the event’s closing ceremony. The balloon flew over the main arena and headed out towards Eastmoor.
