Hot Air Balloon Fiesta - 15 Mar 2012

The annual Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is back!

There were 28 balloons participating in the Hare & Hound Competition this year. To catch the balloons flying up, we were there at 7.30am and were able to see the colourful preparation bustling with people from the media and team members from participating countries.

Hare was the first balloon that took off to be followed by the hounds, ie the other balloons..

Ground work to get the balloons ready.....

 Hot air balloons are based on a very basic scientific principle
- warmer air rises in cooler air.

 The biggest birthday cake balloon took the longest time to get ready.......

Here they go!!!!!!!!!
Balloons are all one-way flight and they only travel as fast as the wind blows.
