University of Southern Indiana's engineering program landed a balloon about 16 km East of Fairfield airport on Saturday October 26th around 2pm.
The balloon's audio picked up what sounded like a small airplane circling the balloon for about the last five thousand feet of its descent. We were wondering if the plane was from your airport, and if they took any video or still photos of the flight - it would be great to have images of the balloon landing.
Please contact John Siepierski - johnsiepierski@gmail.com if you can share any images
Many thanks.
