Friday evening saw a very special flight for one of the event Directors Barry Newman.

Barry has just taken delivery of his brand new Hot Air Balloon, a replica of his previous balloon ‘Spot’. Barry flew his Grandson Morgan and fellow Balloon Pilot Martin Lovell for its maiden flight.

Barry & Martin had a great flight, landing just the other side of Bozeat alongside many other Balloons that had flown on Friday evening. The Balloon is very special as it carries the website address of The Northampton Balloon Festival.
