Gosau, Austria January 2006

The weather was perfect. We had clear blue skies, deep glistening snow and frosted trees pointing up to the surrounding peaks. I was with the Aeronautic Team - Michael and Angelika Kloss from Wolbröd near Cologne, and Matthias and Natalie Pross from Weilburg. Over the seven days we flew six days, most flights at over 11,000 feet.

Michael was flying his recently acquired balloon, a 250 made by Thunder and Colt which he bought from Malcolm White in Ireland. On the 12th January he took his crew and guests up to an altitude of 20,000 feet, a personal record.
