To much relief, Alban the school mascot was recovered from a tree in a field in Cheshire. See this write-up in the local Cambridge newspaper.
The “floater” flight initially did very well, ascending at the target rate (which is a challenge in itself with these flights), and turning west at the predicted latitude. It then achieved a float but only for a couple of hours, when the balloon burst resulting in a wet landing off the coast of Blackpool. During the flight many images were sent down over the radio link, so it was a good flight though the aim wasn’t achieved.
