We’re slowly running out of superlatives to describe our magical flights here! This morning, we got up really early and met at the launch site at 6 o’clock for a sunrise flight. It’s hard to describe the atmospheric morning mood that awaited us at 2000 meters with no poet at hand… ;-) …and even the [...]
Our seventh flight at Kirchberg was no less amazing than the ones before! Expecting winds from south-westerly directions, we took off from Westendorf to do a fly in to Kirchberg again – soon discovering that winds were coming from north-west rather than south-west. They took us right over the Alpenrose, into the mountains… what to [...]
Tuesday morning brought yet another competition flight with a fly in to Kirchberg – and although we fought our way from Westendorf to Kirchberg for almost two hours, we didn’t quite make it to the target. Well, one can always say it was the winds… but the last picture clearly shows three reasons why the [...]
We didn’t really expect that we could top our flight from this morning, but with the same windspeed and direction prevailing, we just decided to do it again and cross the mountains from Söll to Kirchberg. This time, it was a free flight and we didn’t have to concentrate on competition, so we could really [...]
This morning, competition chief Thomas gave us the task to do a fly in from Söll, located in the next valley to the north, to Kirchberg. We didn’t score quite that good at the target, but as we had no retrieve, it was even more important for us to land somewhere near to where our [...]
Sunday evening at Kirchberg was just awesome! As it was a free flight tonight, we set ourselves the goal to fly in to the Kirchberg launch site again – and made it again! =) After that, we were in for a wonderful sunset, a spectacular night glow and some pretty nice fireworks :) Now time [...]
Today’s morning flight marked the start of the competition at Kirchberg – and we managed the fly in from Westendorf to Kirchberg so well that we scored 1000 points! :-) Obviously, not only we were having fun with the balloons, but the cows on the ground as well… ;-) [...]
The Libro Balloon Cup at Kirchberg / Austria has just begun – and we’re lucky enough to be there! :-) The weather forecast is very promising… so we should have some beautiful alpine indian summer balloon flights during the next days! Our first flight this evening led us from the town of Kirchberg to… well, [...]
Now that we’re back from Belgium and have seen through lots and lots of photos, here’s the bunch of the best! Again, we had so much fun showing our model balloons, helping at the gas balloon preparations, watching the hot air balloon mass ascent… and of course at all the evening programmes like the Vredefeesten [...]
Just as the years before, we are pleased to take part in the Vredefeesten in Sint-Niklaas in Belgium with our model balloons! For three days, balloons of all shapes and sizes will fill Belgium’s biggest market place – and you can watch the spectacle through the webcam of the town hall of Sint-Niklaas: http://webcam.sint-niklaas.be [...]
The passion of a lifetime: To behold the stunning beauty of our world like no one else, free like a bird, high in the sky, yet one with nature, using the oldest principle of flight known to man: Lighter than air.
No wings, no noise, no pressure… just serenity, just perfect bliss. At one with the elements… at one with yourself.
This is why we live A LIFE OF BALLOONING.
