Watch out for the balloon!

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A flight was on approach to its destination, about 8nm before touchdown when the crew saw a balloon close to their approach path, they contacted ATC to ask about the balloon and ATC told them that the balloon wouldn’t cross their path. As a result, the aircraft continued its approach and landed safely a few minutes later. Airport authorities later contacted local police to investigate the incident.
