65TH COUPE AÉRONAUTIQUE GORDON BENNETT
Oh what a fabulous adventure that was! =) Our 3rd participation in the famous Gordon Bennett Race, our second longest and second farthest gas balloon journey, and all that in one flight! We couldn’t be happier.
Altogether, we covered a distance of 1258 kilometers in 50 hours and 15 minutes – two nights and two and a half days in the air, nonstop, from St. Gallen in Switzerland to Brestnitsa in Bulgaria. The flight led us over Lake Constance, past our lovely home region, into the Alps south of Salzburg, towards the Steiermark and then to Hungary, Serbia and finally Bulgaria. But see for yourself… ;-)
