Cat. 2 investigation report: simplified-format report, adapted to the circumstances of the occurrence and the investigation stakes.
During the approach to land in a field, the two occupants saw the powerline which was perpendicular to the balloon’s path. However, one of the poles also held a second line at an angle of about 30° to the balloon’s path. This branch off was not perceived by the two occupants and the envelope collided with this second line during the landing.
