A hot air balloon takes off from Houghton Regis, then immediately gets stuck in a tree.
Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire.
Note: the commentator incorrectly says "Sussex".
Various shots of a hot air balloon being prepared for takeoff on a common by members of the British Balloonist and Airship Club; quite a large crowd of people are gathered to watch. The huge balloon slowly inflates and several men run along, carrying the basket and trying to get it airborne.
The balloon flies a short distance at a low level, then staggers over a wall and gets stuck in a tree. Several shots of the balloon stuck in the branches of the tree, and being untangled.
Note: the exact location of the common is not stated. Cuts exist - see separate record.
