Track the balloons across Europe

https://live.gordonbennett.aero

20 gas balloons launched into the night sky from Montbeliard airport France last night. Perfect flying conditions will allow the teams long flights to fulfil their strategies.

Team Australia were well organised as the crowd cheered them skywards. Swiss team of Nicolas Tieche and Laurent Schiboz were jovial, teasing each other so relaxed. Wonderful to observe.

More later on this amazing aerial challenge.
