GORDON BENNETT 2006 - They did it again!

GORDON BENNETT 2006 - They did it again.

Film Gordon Bennett 2006

September 9th, 2006: The major gas balloon race in the world started in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium. All the big tv stations like VRT VTM RTL, and even a Russian tv station were present to cover the race. William De Rudder from Sint-Niklaas, who already made several National Geographic films, was present too. He made a magnificent reportage (as he does every year) about this unique and spectacular event. He mixed his own pictures with those taken by the pilots in their baskets, and by the chase crews. You can also witness the triumphant return of the winners Philippe De Cock and Ronny Van Haver, when they were driven into town like real gladiators, something Sint-Niklaas had never ever seen before.

Did you miss all the fun or would you like to see it again?

The Belgian Balloon Federation offers you a onetime occasion to see the movie in the presence of all the pilots, on June 24th 2007 in SINISCOOP (Sint-Niklaas), at 10:30 am. Entrance: 5 Euro per ticket.
