Texas Hot Air Balloon Crash, 'No Survivors'

Texas Hot Air Balloon Crash, 'No Survivors'

A hot air balloon has caught fire and crashed in the US state of Texas, killing all 16 people on board, local media say.

Aviation officials said the balloon came down near Lockhart, south of the city of Austin, after catching fire.

Texas media, quoting the sheriff in Caldwell County, said there did not appear to be any survivors.

A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) statement said the balloon came down in a field at about 07:40 (12:40 GMT).

FAA investigators are on their way. The National Transportation Safety Board will eventually take over the inquiry.

Re: Texas Hot Air Balloon Crash, 'No Survivors'

fuck me.... I've seen one burn a hole though itself before but it was on the ground. I hadn't thought about fire while in flight (which is always horrific).

Pics also look similar to the NZ accident in 2012.
