Message From The Editor

During your celebrations please be aware:

The glow of Chinese-style hot air balloon lanterns released at night are awe inspiring and a climax for any celebration however once out of sight they are not out of mind, particularly to landowners at the location where they touch-down. As the flame decays the lantern gently descends until reaching an obstacle, it is at this point, where the flame is still glowing the tissue fabric of the balloon can ignite presenting a fire hazard. If the location is open ground with no flammable materials then the risk is low however as happens at the RAF Halton airfield, lanterns have fallen within 25m of a bulk fuel installation where there is the potential for a low-lying vapour hazard – similar to a garage forecourt – where the combination of consequences could be catastrophic. Hence the advice to restrict release near airfields and installations. Please consider the consequence of your actions in the surrounding land.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents have issued the following guidelines:

“Do Not Launch Within 5 Miles Of Any Airfield or Airport. Do Not Use Near Built-up Areas, Roads, Crops, Hay Bales, Trees or Power Lines”
