Biennale Mondiale de l'Aerostation
Every other end of July/beginning of August on odd numbered years would find us heading for an ex Nato airbase on the French-German border.
The largest balloon meet in Europe, great countryside to fly in, great farmers and great cheese.
This shot was taken with the Minolta Vectis 2000, an APS camera which was set in panoramic mode for this. Must have been taken by the wife I think as according to my log book I flew both morning and evening of the 1st that year. I bought the camera from Argos and planned to use it then take it back under their 28 day money back guarantee unused, unfortunately I dropped it denting it, I still have it.
