Chambley by night


This year’s hot air balloon festival in France — called Lorraine Mondial Air Ballons — featured a 408-balloon mass ascension, breaking the world record of the most balloons ascended simultaneously. Over a thousand international pilots and crew took part in multiple takeoffs within ten days of the gathering in Chambley.
