2021 Balloon Fiesta - Press Flight

Airship & Balloon Company were very pleased to help launch the 2021 Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, for Costa Coffee at the Press Launch in Elm Park, Filton, on August 4th. ABC balloons flew cameras from ITV and Woven Films to capture the action, in our Shield balloon and also our brand new ABC silver and black balloon. The ABC balloons were skillfully flown and managed to take off and land in the same launch field, by flying a box - using the upper and lower winds to steer the balloon. A great result and we look forward to flying again during the Fiesta Fortnight.
