Longleat Sky Safari 2017
Here's our photos of the 2017 Exclusive Cup at Longleat. This year the number of balloons was doubled to 120! The highlight of the event was Saturday morning, where just over 100 balloons took to the skies, with us flying too! 30 balloons had allocated launch spots each side of Lodge Drive, in front of the Longleat house, whilst the remaining pilots flew from a large arena on the other side of the water. Despite some very bad weather at times and a dangerous decision to call the Friday evening flight on as a thunderstorm was approaching, 2 stunning morning flights took place plus 3 other small launches.
Longleat Sky Safari 2016
We were at the Longleat Sky Safari organised by Exclusive Ballooning 15-18 September 2016. It was the event's first year and was brilliantly run and organised. We enjoyed crewing for James McDonald flying G-JEMS and were lucky enough to fly on two occasions! Can't wait to go back next year and hope you like our photos.
