    Luxor Hot Air Balloon Tragedy


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter WashDCGuy still remembers his hot air balloon ride in Luxor in July 2010. "I felt very safe and in fact remember thinking that the pilot and crew for my balloon were overly cautious and constantly on the radio monitoring the other balloons in the group to ensure we didn't collide," he said. "There was a full safety briefing prior to the flight and reminders along the way." 19 people died on Tuesday when a hot air balloon exploded and plummeted to the ground in Luxor, Egypt, officials said.
