A Flying Visit

 A Flying Visit

Boom! Aaaaaaaagh! Patrick was flying to his Granny’s house in a brown hot air balloon. The fire of the burner system had gone out of control and popped the balloon. He was now hurdling to the ground in a cockpit on fire!

He thought about what he could do. He kicked over his bottle of water to put out the fire. He was still hurdling to the ground though and it was very frightening indeed. Seconds later, he sploshed into the deep sea and tried not to drown.

 Suddenly, a coastguard helicopter appeared out of the clouds. It swooped down and he jumped onto it just in time. Phew, that was close! “Never fly alone” cautioned the coastguard.

  2. Hi Cillian
    What an explosive start to your 100 word challenge! It had me sitting on the edge of my seat reading through it and I felt a great sense of relief when the coastguard helicopter suddenly appeared. I liked your last sentence "Never fly alone cautioned the coastguard" Good advice and great writing for the 100 word challenge. Well done.
