An Essex Balloon ride flies over the remains of Rivenhall Airfield at Silver End. Most of the runways have been dug up for construction material and beneath the natural gravel is now being extracted for the same purpose. A second view is from the balloon basket flying low level over the Essex countryside close to Silver End village which was home to the Crittall Windows production facility when it expanded from Braintree in 1926
