Courageous, record breaking balloon pilot Julian Nott

Julian Nott, the courageous, talented aviator dies in hospital following a soft balloon touchdown.

Scientist and Aviator Julian Nott Dies After a Bizarre Accident | LTA-Flight Magazine

A remarkable man who risked his life to push the envelope of ballooning, sadly his extraordinary career is somewhat overshadowed by a bizarre accident following a soft touchdown in an experimental capsule.

I saw an obit for Julian in the Telegraph. A sad end to a life very well lived. The flight is never over until the aircraft is chocked or hangared.
