Two hot air balloons with fifteen people on board have made emergency landings in the centre of the city, probably due to the wind deficiency. Luckily none of the passengers or observers were injured.Posted at 8:08 pm on September 10, 2014 by Michal Citterberg
Before the two balloons raised up, the pilots checked the weather and wind conditions, which seemed optimal. However, up above the wind stopped. As both pilots from rival companies realized there was a storm coming, they were forced to make an emergency landing. One of them landed on a local house of culture and the other pilot landed on the city square, only twenty meters from his home.
Even though none was hurt, both police and technical investigations are currently taking place.
