A FLIGHT WITH THE WORLD CHAMPIONS
… was the definite highlight of our weekend at Chemnitz! :-) When the launch of the hot air balloons on Saturday evening was cancelled due to too gusty conditions, the 2014 gas balloon world champions Wilhelm Eimers and Matthias Zenge decided to inflate their netless gas balloon for an evening hop, and I was lucky enough to fly with them. Thank you Gasballoon Team Zenge / Eimers for that unique experience!
Another adventure at Chemnitz, apart from ballooning, was a flight with the historic Antonow AN-2 airplane – an unforgettable experience for sure, but oh what a loud one! I definitely prefer the gas balloon… ;-)
We also had some model balloon action, of course, and a nicely choreographed mini night glow… no photos from that one, as we all were busy glowing, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy the pictures nevertheless.
