#GEMAB23 – FLIGHT ONE
The first flight at this year’s Grand Est Mondial Air Ballons was quite an exciting one: Winds at the ground were quite strong, but predicted to go down as sunset approached – the only question was would they decrease early enough to still have some time to fly before sunset.
We accurately monitored the development, and just in the right moment we inflated our little balloon and took of as the first, thus opening Europe’s biggest balloon festival! =) Thanks to the many helping hands that made our launch go smooth as possible.
The direction was a bit challenging indeed, with many prohibited zones and airspaces ahead, but we managed to find a nice landing spot near Novéant-sur-Moselle. What a nice evening! :-)
