49 nations, 1,207 pilots and 983 balloons were recorded during ten days, representing an average of 383 balloons for each flight. On Saturday 3th (morning), 10 mass ascents have been successful for 9 canceled due to bad weather. After two years of waiting (the event takes place every two years, the last week of July and the first of August), the pilots met for this international appointment in a festive and enthusiastic atmosphere that lasts ten days. For this 13th edition, the slogan “Beyond the dream” was to meet expectations of all!

Two world records for LMAB®

The 13th edition will not be the one that will save the biggest number of mass ascents, but two world records were successful. The first mass ascent in less than an hour with 408 balloons. And the great line with 391 balloons lined up on the runway and the taxiway. Wonderful reward for the Pilâtre de Rozier team, organizer of LMAB®.

Lorraine Mondial Air Ballons® 2013 remains the biggest gathering of hot air balloons in the world… The 13th edition, which ends on August 4th on Chambley Planet’Air (Meurthe-et-Moselle – Lorraine – France), has accumulated records, but it had to face weather changes, a mini tornado at the beginning of the heatwave. The closure weekend should be spared by the wind.

The 8th day, the competition ends

This new day promises to be warm and sunny on the aerodrome of Chambley Planet’Air. The sky will offer magical lights to multicolored balloons for the end of the 13th Competition Trophy Lorraine Mondial Air Ballons®.

Pilâtre de Rozier Organisation is very happy. Last night, 408 balloons have invaded the skies of Chambley same time as the stars twinkled in the eyes of spectators. And this morning, there are 391 balloons met together aligned before taking off into the air. Two world records were broken.

The 6th day, the dream overwhelms the sky

It is sad that we have opened our eyes this morning on a gray sky. Our same desire of magic is growing and it will be stronger than everything. Tonight, the sky will be dressed with colorful balloons. A mass ascent of hot air balloons, a takeoff of gas balloons, and “Night Glow” will brighten our smiles.
