First Nightglow of the Lubao International Balloon Festival

First flight of the Lubao International Balloon Festival, in the Philippines

Mondovi has a rich history of ballooning with the city becoming synonymous with balloons.

  

Recently the city decided to commission their first hot air balloon and we are delighted they chose Lindstrand Technologies to build it.

   

The balloon was launched this AM with a gaggle of balloons taking to sky with the new balloon.

 

 

Telford Balloon and Kite Festival, 12-13th May 2018. Balloon entry is still open. If you would like to enter a balloon/s please email: lorna.hankey@lindstrandtech.co.uk

**Pilots will have free gas and camping at this event. The campsite will be offering a bar facility and Bacon butties in the AM.

First flight of the Lindstrand Technologies Series 1 – 425 in Bagan, Myanmar. Some great pictures from resident pilot Captain Andy Davey. We look forward to many more pics.

Thanks to our next generation balloonists for their help at the Oswestry Christmas parade.

You can catch one of the Lindstrand Demo Racers at the Saga International Balloon Fiesta this week, ably flown by Crispin Williams. Crispin scored an excellent 11 cm in today’s marker drop.

We look forward to more results. Photo Credit: Crispin and Sara Williams.

We are always impressed with what people use our balloons for, but this flight needs a special mention. The Opony Express balloon team recently flew their Series 1 -105 from Poland to Sweden, an awesome achievement and a lot of water to cross. Congratulations to the pilots for some stunning flying skills from all of us at Lindstrand.

Przelot balonem nad Bałtykiem

Dwa lata przygotowań zakończone sukcesem. 30 września razem z Mikołajem Jancem przelecieliśmy Bałtyk balonem na ogrzane powietrze. Lot nie odbył by się bez pomocy mojej ekipy: Mateusz Bajończak, Łukasz Kubaczyk, kolegów baloniarzy ze Szwecji Henrik Holmqvist, Anders Holmqvist oraz Polski Daniel Szczurowski i Piotr Ojrzyński który pomagał mi przy meteo. Dziękuje wszystkim, którzy trzymali kciuki i nam kibicowali. Jestem miło zaskoczony tak dużą ilością ciepłych słów i gratulacji. Jeszcze raz dziękuję. Mirosław Kowalski Two years finished success. The 30rd of september toghether with Mikołaj Janc we fly through Baltic Sea in hot air balloon. The flight would be impossible without my Balloon Team: Mateusz Bajończak, Łukasz Kubaczyk and my firends from Sweden Henrik Holmqvist, Anders Holmgvist and Daniel Szczurowski – also ballonist and Piotr Ojrzyński – he helped me in meteorology. I thank all of You, who they kept their fingers crossed and cheered of us. I am really surprised so much warm words and congratulations from people.Mirosław Kowalski

Landing rush hour at the worlds biggest hot air balloon fiesta. Albuquerque!! Per and his team have joined 600 other balloons for 10 days of New Mexican flying.

Another BIG ‘thank you so much’ to all those that came to this year’s Sky Safari and made it so very special (especially those who braved the very wet and windy weather)! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We’ve whipped up this video so we can all relive the best bits
