Redécollage du ballon à l’atterrissage, collision avec une ligne électrique, lors d’un vol à titre onéreux

France - BEA

Investigation progression Closed
Progress: 100%

During the landing in a field, the pilot was probably confronted with an increase in wind strength, while he experienced difficulties pulling the vent cord and thus deflating the envelope. The balloon took off again, and flew over and touched a line of trees about 10 m high before landing in another field. In this context, the pilot could not prevent the envelope from coming into contact with the cables of a power line.
