|A balloon like VE3RMC-11|
I had a phone call from a very happy Richard-VA3VDP just after it had launched.
The balloon tracked in a South-East direction, and 26 minutes into the flight it was at 10,002m, and nearly a third of the way to its intended height.
At 1111L the balloon burst at 29,013m just short of its 35,000m target, and 39 minutes later it touched down in a farmers field about 23 Kms (as the crow flies) south of Wingham.
Looking at the APRS tracks of the chase vehicles it looks like a successful recovery of the payload was carried out.
Well done Richard!! We look forward to hearing the details in a few days.
