Local plane spotter Kayanne H was very excited to be invited on board one the many tethered flights that were operated by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Balloon - VH-LVD - from the CQ NRL Bid Club at Rockhampton late on Friday 6 June.
The RAAF hot-air balloon - Kavanagh Balloons B-105 VH-LVD - operated several tethered flights to a height of 20 metres during the evening, exciting not only those lucky enough to enjoy a ride, but also the gathered crowd that grew as the night went on.
Kayanne also managed to capture these stunning photos.
She advised that the RAAF Balloon was expected to operate tethered flights at the CQ NRL Bid Club again on Saturday 7 June.
Certainly a great sight - and an even better sight from 20 metres off the ground! Thanks Kayanne for sending these lovely photos through!
