The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is Europe’s largest annual meeting of hot air balloons, attracting over 130 Hot Air Balloons from across the world. 

This year it was hoped for 6 'mass' accents from Friday-Sunday. Unfortunately due to very poor weather only only 1 was achieved, with in excess of 80 balloons flying in the early morning sunshine.

The 'Old Gits' were invited to the press launch day, it was a beautiful sunny day unfortunately for the Old Gits weight was not on our side (mind you it rarely ever is). Only 1 of the team could actually fly, John won the opportunity leaving Chris to be the official 'ground' photographer. Enjoy the photos and the 2 hour show that you can also find below.
