Ray Hunt - funeral update
We have been informed that Ray sadly passed away this morning following a massive heart attack.

Many of you will know Ray from many years back as he has been a skilled pilot for a long number of years; flying commercially, competitively and for fun.

He regularly flew the Hurt Arm/JC Balls balloon, and in recent years Ray, and his wife Vanessa, came along to our balloon meets (when they weren't away in Italy flying). Ray and Vanessa were due to come to the Autumn Gold meet, but with the saturated ground, Ray decided to take a rain check.

Ray will be very much missed in ballooning, and I am sure that many of you will join with us in extending our heartfelt condolences to Vanessa and family at this very sad time.

We will post more information regarding the funeral on here as it is known.

RIP Ray, sunshine and soft landings.
