A young couple who died in yesterday's ballooning tragedy had already tried twice to go up in a hot air balloon but bad weather had postponed it.
Finally, fine weather yesterday meant 19-year-old Alexis Still and her partner Chrisjan Jordaan, in his early 20s, could float over Carterton.
But by 7.30am the pair were among 11 people who died when the balloon hit a power line, caught fire and plummeted into a paddock.

Paradosis ≠ Asteriktos ≠ Justin

Hey, so I'm in a pop-alt-punk-folk-prog band called "Affable Dregs" and we have a new album coming out, titled "Vicious Turnips Always Taste Most Delicious." We'd really appreciate your support!

May the memory of all who perished be eternal and may their families be comforted in the prayerful expectation of being reunited with them in Heaven

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
