joe fm - 99 luftballons The Belgian radio JOE fm celebrates its 5th anniversary and they wanted to do that in a very special way: they would try to bring the song "99 Luftballons" (in English: 99 Red Balloons) from Nena to life. In Eeklo actually 107 balloons came together: never before that many balloons took off at the same time in Belgium. Our team was there with two of our balloons: the Big Wasp, and our Funny Bunny that was definitely one of the eye-catchers.

For the time of the year weather was very good: stable and very calm. Visibility was a bit less but the many visitors sure enjoyed the spectacular view. Several hundreds of them were winners of the contest on the radio where they could win a balloonflight for 2. Both our balloons made a flight of about an hour, and landed gently in Sint-Laureins.

It was the first time our Bunny visited Turnhout. We took off from the citypark and made a very gentle flight passing Vosselaar and landing in Beerse. Over Vosselaar a maximimum height of 3,300 feet was reached. It took quite a while to find a decent landing spot. After a flight of one hour and a half we brought our passengers back to the ground, safe and happy.

Rather strong winds made us cover a large distance today: almost 30 km. Our bunny took off in Herentals and south-west winds directed it to the Dutch border. In Lichtaart we had a nice view on the attractions of Bobbejaanland. We flew over Kasterlee, Retie and Dessel, and reached the woods of Postel. In this area there are very few possibilities to land, so it took a long time to find a spot where we could land the balloon. After a flight of more than one hour and a half, we landed on a road between the fields.
