Sunday Night Flight

The latest video on Test Tube is a hot air balloon flight with Dr Janet Folkes in the University of Nottingham balloon.

Janet's adventures have provided some of the most memorable footage of the project.

The main reason I filmed this fairly routine flight was to experiment with putting a small camera under the basket.

The camera experiment was a great success (though a small technical issue meant we missed the landing!)

By the way, the passengers (Darren and Julie) won their flight in a charity auction. Here's a map of the hour-long journey.

And here's a link to some of other great videos with Janet. Below is the blue balloon's maiden flight for which I was lucky enough to be on board!
