red balloon #24
Released: 1st July 2008, Fitzroy, Vic, Australia
Sighted: 22nd July 2008, Geelong, Victoria, Australia
"My balloon was released from Geelong on a cold and wintry Friday night. It was pleased to have reached the end of the week and to finally be free. I next saw it in Barwon Heads - friends and I were there for the weekend and noticed the balloon attached to the little red plane doing free-style tricks. I wondered what would become of my balloon #24, as I watched it keep pace with the aeroplane."
