We reported yesterday from witness accounts that a hot air balloon in distress made a quick landing in an East Kelowna neighbourhood.
But now, Owner/Operator and balloon Pilot John Klempner sets the record straight, saying it was a planned landing and nothing had gone wrong.
Klempner says balloon enthusiasts often have to land on roadways and he and his team picked that roadway because it was a perfect landing spot.
He says the homeowner of the driveway they picked to set down in even knew he was coming and there was no crash landing or distress in his flight.
He hopes to clear up the concern after the media attention and the over 100 person audience on the street.
He says the landing was planned, controlled and entirely safe.
