Now that the flight is over and the balloon packed up, it's back to Gladbeck for a welcome back party on Friday evening, and then an event debrief and closing ceremonies on Saturday. Of course for a number of teams, including Foxtrot Charlie, the system has be packed for shipping back to the United States. America's Challenge starts in 2 weeks.
Congrats to the winners, Swiss 1, Kurt Frieden and Pascal Witpraechtiger for winning the second year in a row, making the 1800 km flight from Gladbeck to Greece. You can read more about them here, or on their Facebook page.
and of course to our favorites, Barbara and Peter, flying a track that kept them over land, covering nearly 1100 km, ending with a stand up landing in a nice big field with easy retrieval for the crew.
It was a great competition to watch and read about. We hope you enjoyed this posts.
Thanks for reading and following along.
