The same Virgin hot air balloon that landed in a back garden on a trip from hell also touched down on a children's playing field seven months ago.
Sir Richard Branson's blimp – registration G-VBAP – caused a stir on the Wrecclesham Estate in Farnham, Surrey, in October.
Collect Fourteen passengers had a trip from hell when the balloon smashed through tree tops, ripping its fabric, buzzed an RAF runway, aborted a landing and ended up in a pensioner's back garden in Odiham, Hants
Michael Tooley, 49, who lives opposite the Greenfield Road grassy play area, took photos from his window and said: "It came down right in the middle of our estate."
Another witness added: "It was right next to swings on which young children were playing.
They scarpered – I think they thought aliens had come for them!
"We were all wondering if the pilot couldn't find a more suitable place to land.
Quite a crowd gathered when it was safe to do so."
