thankfully, my flight was nothing like that

Well, I was going to mention my interesting Sunday morning hot air balloon flight.  I heard on the radio that 19 people perished this morning from a propane explosion in a balloon over Luxor, Egypt. I was having second thoughts about saying anything.

It'll take a while to sort out what happened.  One person said the drop line knocked the valve off the tank, which would be highly unlikely. The pilot jumped out and survives, so maybe that'll help get answers.

I just got called to start work early, so I'll just post the video of my Sunday flight. It was a most exciting flight and not at all what I expected I'd be doing on a 22 degree early Sunday morning.
