Race control: 'We have lost contact with the balloon'
Don Cameron, from race control, says that one of the balloons taking part in the Gordon Bennett Cup is missing in thunderstorms over the Adriatic.
The missing hydrogen balloon, piloted by Richard Abruzzo and Carol Rymer Davis, is one of three US entries.
A spokeswoman at race control in Bristol said contact had been lost with the balloon, and there was concern that it might have had to ditch.
