    Egyptian Hot Air Balloon Ride


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     New Jersey resident THOMASINNJ had an enjoyable ride on a hot air balloon trip in Egypt in November 2011. He was saddened to hear of the deaths of 19 people in a balloon crash in Luxor on Tuesday. "It must have been terrifying, because the ride itself is such a calm and peaceful experience, normally," he said.
    - sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer

    We took that ride 2 1/2 years ago. It was a beautiful morning and flight. I remember that the captain and crew all called out Allah Wakbar! over and over as the balloon ascended. We floated over the Nile and Valley of the Kings with its tombs.
