The MAB – Région Grand Est trophy was given before Saturday night’s pilot briefing. A sumptuous Lalique was waiting for its winner on the podium alongside a champagne bottle. The winners are Pierre-Antoine Roussel, Raphaël Zuccolo et Graeme Church. They are French, Swiss and British respectively. Therefore the Marseillaise rang out in the Hangar G and it was followed by a moving speech by Philippe Buron Pilâtre. Congratulations to our three winners!

The Very Old Burner Trophy and the Passing the Burner Challenge didn’t take place regarding the bad weather conditions.

The Great Line wasn’t the only record beaten today. In fact, the media coverage also took off, by the number of journalists and the audience. Media came en masse from all over France but also the world to enjoy and have others enjoy this incredible show. The #MAB2017 has been the common theme of the morning show on CNews, whereas the event was on everybody’s lips and cameras, from the Chine Nouvelle press agency to TF1 through Radio Jerico. In terms of numbers, the Facebook page of France 3 recorded over 25 000 views in 2 hours and reached over 100 000 people. The counts are far from being over.

New RECORD: Sky is the new limit

We have been waiting for it since Sunday. It is under a sky in fifty shades of grey that the world record has been broken: 456 balloons have been officially count on 8880 meters.
Unofficially, we were nearly 500 balloons but not everyone of them met the criteria of the world record. Thus we have quite a margin for future Mondials. We warmly thanks the pilots who stayed with us until the end.
We will remember this morning when on the airfield euphoria was waltzing with the emotion of the show.
