A radiosonde balloon
from the American base
of Chaumont
burst near Sombernon

A radiosonde balloon, of American origin (the orange color of the parachute is proof of this) was discovered in recent days in a field near Sombernon.

The balloon probably burst while hooking up the nearby high-voltage power line.

It was probably released from the base of Chaumont, the wind blowing from that direction at high altitude. Other probability of identification: the lack of indication on the balloon; which is typical, the Americans not recovering the material.
