The GB team of David Hempleman-Adams and Simon Carey have completed their test flight in their brand-new Cameron Balloons GB-1000.
Taking off from the Gordon Bennett 2010 launch site north of Bristol, they drifted over the city, creating a stir amongst those watching. The balloon successfully landed a little while before sunset; no parachutes were required!
