As this Intro is being written, England is coming out of Lockdown 2, although the run up to Christmas promises to be little better!
Several envelopes leave the List this issue, one sold, two withdrawn and one heading for ‘honourable retirement in preservation’. Several of Andrew Lovell’s items have sold as have a fan, trailer and a few small items.
The only envelope to join for December is a high houred LBL105A with the red (cut in) artwork failing a grab test. Zebedee has added a couple of fans, some crown ropes and a Cameron 90/105 basket, whilst Sean Simmington has now split up the G-BYSV package, with the basket and burner still available.
We are pleased to report that Dan Glick in California has had at least one pilot respond to his ad for large balloon training (see Sits Vac).
Zebedee continues the slow process of adding photographs to all its ads – this time we have added some refuelling adapters to the List including pictures of some which have been there for some while …. Our team are all ‘at home’ this month, so able to make last minute dispatches of items for Christmas – or to Europe ahead of the still unknown hassle known as Brexit…
Finally at the end of this unhappy year we extend Christmas Greetings to all our readers and hope 2021 will enable you to have an uninterrupted year of safe flying and we will see the return of passenger rides balloon operations in the UK and the return of tourists to all the other popular spots in the world where such flying takes place.
