Launch site: Benhall infant school, Cheltenham
Landing site: Bishops Cleeve
Balloon type: 800gm Cosmoprene
Burst Height: Balloon did not burst
Equipment: SPOT Messenger, Cattrack, PITS, Go Pro Hero, Mascot bear with Trace and Cattrack
Comments: The launch was in a heavy downpour of rain. This added weight to the balloon, preventing lift. The payload was made lighter by removing the trace and cattrack. Positive buoyancy was achieved but during the flight the mascot and parachute got very wet. The balloon ascended for some time then descended. It then ascended again before finally descending and got caught up in a perimeter fence of GE avionics.
