Friends, admirers pay homage to balloonist

POST MILLS—“Jump in, let’s go for a ride,” was often on the lips of the late Brian Boland, the guy who brought ballooning to Post Mills Airport.
The weather was perfect as pilots and balloon enthusiasts from near and far converged on the Post Mills Airport on Sept. 11-12 for the gathering of the 2021 Experimental Balloon and Airship Association.
The event served as a memorial of sorts for Boland, 72, who died after falling from a balloon in Bradford on July 15.
