Egypt Hot Air Balloon Tragedy

I've never really liked the idea of going up in one of these, and I'm even less sold on it now.

At Telegraph UK, "Luxor balloon flights suspended."
All hot air balloon flights in Luxor have been suspended following a crash which resulted in the death of 19 tourists, including two Britons and a UK resident.

Also, "Egypt hot air balloon crash: '18 tourists, including Britons, killed'."

Added: From Bloomberg, "Egypt Balloon Pilot Jumped From Gondola Before Fatal Crash."
