Perfect conditions for a mass launch from the now disused Chambley airfield in Lorraine, France. A balloon festival is held in Metz every two years. In the UK the biggest balloon event is the Bristol Balloon Fiesta which has been running every August since 1979. For information regarding flights from the Balloon Fiesta and appreciating the magic of floating amongst 100 or more other balloons visit Bailey Balloons
