West Mercia Police Press Release;


A 25-year-old man who died in a hot air balloon accident has been named as Peter Gregory, from the Cotswolds.

Yesterday, his family have paid tribute to a loved one whose passion for flying was something others could only admire.

In a tribute they said:

“Peter Gregory

25 years of living life to the full.

On the morning of Sunday 25th June, our Pilot Pete took one last flight, doing what he loved.

Be it in a hot air balloon or as an Airline Pilot, Peter’s passion for flying was something his family and friends could only admire and support him towards.

When he set his heart to something, he’d never give up, he was driven and determined, and one could only watch on in awe.

We will fly together again soon Pete.

We love you

Dan, Mummy, Daddy & Emma

During this difficult time, please respect the privacy of friends and family.”

Police were called after a hot air balloon fell to the ground in a field off Holt Fleet Road, near the A449 at Ombersley on Sunday (25 June).

The circumstances surrounding the incident are being invested by the Air Accident Investigation Branch; and while specialist family liaison officers are supporting the family there is no other police involvement.
