19 May 2007, by Viktor Balogh
10 balloons flew across the lake Balaton, 8 participant were from Hungary and 2 from Lithuania. The competition lasted five days, every morning and afternoon was a flight from different starting points. These panoramas were taken at the 3rd afternoon, the balloons took off from the Toth Riding Centre.
The take off lasted about a half hour. First they blew up the balloons with cold air, with a help of a motorized propeller. Then he fired the gas heater and pumped in some hot air, after that the balloons rised. Then the baskets needed to straighten up, and the ride begun!
