Hot air balloon crashes, kills 19 Feb. 27th, 2013 @ 01:11 AM Reply

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/feb/26/luxor-hot-air-ba lloon-crash-kills-tourists

So it's just another hot, sunny, day in Luxor, Egypt. Or not. 19 tourists were killed just a few hours ago when the hot air balloon they were riding in crashed 1000 feet to the ground. There were only two survivors, the Egyptian pilot and one British tourist. This is said to have been the worst ballooning accident in the world.

I honestly have half a mind to believe it was sabotage, considering tit was in the middle of Egypt and all. But hey, nobody really knows yet, do they?

You don't have to worry about your deposit on the balloon.

I find it humorous that a balloon was the reason 19 people got killed.

And this is why I don't plan on going in a hot air balloon.
That and I have a major fear of heights and would be freaking out quite a bit ._.

would you say you have no empathy for the struggle of hot air balloons? what if there was a hot air balloon which could make more hot air balloons, would it be good enough for you then

hot air ballons having sex with one another/themselves (if they are hermos) would be very immoral and i could not support it in good conscious

Why do we NEED hot air balloons? There are other ways to sight see, I don't see why anyone would ever want to hot air balloon.

They should design the baskets to be fire proof and carry a fire extinguisher. They may already do this in the USA, but in these other countries who knows. I wonder if they could equip an emergency parachute so if there is a problem with the balloon they could disconnect it and deploy the parachute. This would only work if the balloon was high enough to allow the parachute time to deploy.

i believe it was only an isolated incident. hot air balloons are still safe.

i have flown in a hot air balloon in australia once when i was a kid to watch the sunrise. it was a little bit scary at first because i was not used to being airborne, but overall, i enjoyed the flight. the scenery was beautilful.
