    Default Helicopter in flight discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Helicopter in flight

    Near Streatley in Berkshire, UK. I was looking for a company very close to this location which does hot-air balloon flights, maybe there's some connection here?

    I don't think it's anyting to do with ballooning - look how close the HV electricity cables and pylons are!

    I'm checking and will post when I have info.

    The company I was searching for is:

    Blooners 2000 Limited
    Conifers Wantage Road Streatley Berkshire RG8 9LA

    If you search for this address it's very close to the spot where the helicopter is. Of course, it doesn't mean that's where the balloons are based but it seemed like a good place to start looking. I think you're probably right about the power lines, not a clever place to be floating around.
    I can only make one person happy per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow isn't looking good either.

    http://www.blooners2000.co.uk/ may help you

    and this is their exact location:

    I can assure you that they do not operate from either their postal address or the GE location. I live two miles away! Their web site lists their launch sites.
