What was great that I was able to see balloon on landing, We were in the great spot and that thing flew just above us and .....landed in small, less than 1 ac. pond - what a luck !!!
That was good and bed, gondola opened, there was a little water inside, USB stick got wet, but after drying it is working great and I did not loose any data. Good of this landing - it was soft - water. Funny I had to borrow small boat from owner of the pond to retrieve by balloon.
That was really something
Thanks for help
