Back in May we reported of a school HAB flight that was lost at sea.
The Payload of the balloon launched by the Friends School, Lisburn, was finally lost at sea. This came after the payload landed in the Irish sea between the mull of Galloway and Strangford Loch. The SPOT tracker used by the group transmitted from 13:00 on 1st May to 13:00 on 2nd May then turned off.
Stephen, project leader concludes the story. “You are not going to believe this but our payload has turned up in Scotland on the Mull of Galloway. A family found it in an isolated cove looking for drift wood!
We are pleased with the footage and are now in the process of editing the video which we think may take a while – not the balloon footage but the story before and after!”
