It is funny what kids remember and i had totally forgotten about this incident. My niece was only about 5 at the time but she remembers me taking her to see my Mom who lived in Newtown at the time and we were waving to a Air Balloon that was going over.... I remember later that Day i heard it had Crashed and i think someone was killed? Does anyone remember where the crash was?? It would have been in the early to mid 70s.
