A World Record of 433 Hot Air Balloons take to the Sky
What is our fascination with floating in the sky? Of lifting off and being totally suspended in air? Is it how calm the world is around us...or is it something else? That humans are able to do something that defies nature and explore a place we thought we never could?
Well now we are drifting into the air even more.
At a Lorraine Mondial festival in Chambley-Bussières, France on July 26, 433 balloons sailed into the air, breaking the world record for the most balloons to take flight at once from the same area.
Totally irrelevant: Anyone else think of the famous German song 99 Luftballoons (99 Red Balloons English version)?
I’m hoping that those balloons in the sky were listening to this. Because they beat the song. They made it to 433.
