On Air Now
Heart Breakfast with Ed, Troy & Paulina 6am - 10am
The hot air balloons mass ascents take place in the morning and evening every year but have you ever wondered where they end up?
Our online App tracked the Collett Transport Services balloon during each flight so you can see where it is, whether it's coming over your house and how far it travels. On Saturday evening the race was on for balloonists to try and get back to Ashton Court in time for the nightglow following the mass ascent, for this reason the Collett Transport Services balloon didn't go up so our App tracked the Blue Sq balloon.
You could view the online App using any smartphone, PC, Laptop etc so whether you're at home, work or on the move you could track the balloons.
