The partial frame of a hot air balloon is visible above a crop field as investigators comb the wreckage of a crash. The hot air balloon that caught fire mid-air and crashed in central Texas killing all 16 people on board may have struck high-voltage power lines before hitting the ground, authorities said on Sunday as they probed the deadliest balloon accident in US history. Federal Aviation Authority officials said the balloon carrying 16 people caught fire before crashing, but provided few other details. Caldwell County Judge Ken Schawe said it looks like the balloon collided with a power line before catching fire and crashing to the ground. An official with the Texas Department of Public Safety said that investigators believe the hot air balloon struck power lines and caught fire.
Law enforcement officers responded to a 911 call about a possible auto accident in the Maxwell area, according to a statement on the Caldwell County Office of Emergency Management’s Facebook page. The NTSB says it is working with the FBI to document the crash site, which was secured like a crime scene for evidence collection.
The name of the company involved in the crash is Heart of Texas Hot Air Balloon Rides, an official with direct knowledge of the investigation said. Audi has today confirmed the extremely rare R8 GT will be on show at the Australian International Motor Show in Melbourne this July. This year’s motor show is shaping up to be a good one, so make sure you make time in your calendar. Audi Australia has confirmed the stunning R8 GT will star alongside the all-new A6 at the 2011 Australian International Motor Show in July. Its hand-built aluminium body featuring an Audi Space Frame (ASF) tips the scales at just 210 kilograms.


The result is a curb weight of just 1,525 kilograms and an extremely high power to weight ratio of 270 kW per 1000 kilograms.
The R8 GT is a driving machine with breathtaking acceleration and lightning-fast, nearly instantaneous response.
This limited edition supercar further underscores its exclusive status with visual modifications to the interior and exterior, including newly designed bumpers in CFC and bucket seats with a chassis of glass fibre-reinforced polymer (GFRP).
Just 333 Audi R8 GTs will be built, with only 5 coming to Australia and the entire production run sold out within weeks, ensuring the R8 GT is one of the fastest, most exclusive cars available anywhere in the world. The new Xperia Z3 from Sony is a premium smartphone that introduces several industry winning features for an unrivalled user experience that helps you achieve more in your personal and work lives.

Previously, the highest number of fatalities in a single US hot air balloon crash was six in 1993 in Colorado.
Balloon flights originate in several locations in central Texas and go to dozens of destinations at USD 399 per passenger, the company says on its website. Only 333 examples of the 412kW supercar have been made and all are sold, including the five models which have been allocated to Australia. Lighter, faster and more powerful, the 412 kW R8 GT is the pinnacle of Audi’s performance engineering and with just five cars coming to Australia will be one of the most exclusive cars on the road. The output of its 5.2-litre FSI V10 has been increased to 412 kW and 540 Nm, while vehicle weight has been reduced by roughly 100 kilograms through the extensive use of carbon fibre composites.
Yet despite this prodigious performance, the efficient direct-injection V10 engine consumes just 13.9 litres of fuel per 100 km on average.


With extensive fine-tuning and the use of carbon-fibre composites (CFC), the Audi engineers were able to reduce the weight of the high performance sports car by 100 kilograms compared to the Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro. The mid-engine sports car never loses its composure as it delivers its power to the road via quattro permanent all-wheel drive and the lightning-fast shifts of its R tronic transmission. The 19-inch wheels keep the car planted firmly on the asphalt, and the optional carbon-fibre ceramic brakes easily keep the power under control. If you demand great features from a flagship smartphone, you’ll find the best of Sony’s high end technology inside the Xperia Z3.
NTSB spokesman Christopher O’Neill said 16 was the maximum number of passengers allowed under federal regulations governing hot air balloon operations.
Xperia Z3 blends a supreme design with engineering, and boasts a super-slim rounded aluminium frame that’s 7.3mm thick.
Power to last Crucially, Xperia Z3 boasts enough power for up to two days usage between charges thanks to Sony’s unique power-saving Battery STAMINA Mode.
The clever software turns off background functions when you’re not using them to help extend your battery life and make the most of your charge. It can power through tasks, too, with Qualcomm’s efficient yet powerful 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor alongside speedy 4G connectivity. Xperia Transfer app helps you make the move from another device, as it can easily import all of your existing music, photos, contacts and more from your old Android, iOS or Windows smartphone.
