Title: Uncontrolled descent (sequel to Up, up and away)
Characters: Ianto, Jack
Challenge: 443 - Flying/Flight 443 at tw100
Notes: Ianto realises his teammates are in trouble.
'Uh Jack,' Ianto said, pointing out over the headland at the large green hot air balloon. 'I think we have a problem.'
Jack turned to follow Ianto's directions.
'I told him not to use any more gas. How the hell does he expect to land a balloon full of hot air?'
'By using it all up and crashing into the ocean, I suspect.'
'Well, they won't crash,' Jack assured him. 'The air will cool at a steady rate. More like a controlled descent. With a bumpy landing.'
'Well, we'd better get the rescue boat ready, or they'll both have hypothermia.'
