Tried twice to reply to this but both bounced as undeliverable, not sure
why.

I cannot tell a lie; it wos me wot dunnit. I dunnit in several other
places. I'd tell you where, but then I'd have to terminate you with
extreme prejudice.

I've failed to get gliders to hang around like that and can't think why.

Now, there's a job for someone with time on his hands. If I had a list
of co-ordinates for the CAA chart spots where baloon flying is
indicated.........

The other evening, flying from EGBJ to EGNS on IVAO, I encountered
some hot air balloons as I approached the Welsh coast - between
Denbigh and Colwyn Bay.  Can anyone tell me where they came from?  Not
Gary's UK2000 - I doubt it?  I don't imagine IVAO can inject random
traffic into their sessions (now there's a thought ...).  So my
suspicion has to fall on either Gerry or Bones, who are the only other
two whose scenery add-ons I have in that general area - and I don't
think any IoM balloons would drift that far.

Gerry!!  Own up!
