Brian Jones Talk and Book Signing

Where: Aerobility Hangar, Blackbushe Airport
Date & Start Time: Saturday 5th March 2016 , 3pm

"What if the world is flat?" An incredible insight into one of the greatest flights in history – Breitling Orbiter 3 talk by Brian Jones, Q&A Session and Book Signing.

On March 21, 1999, Brian Jones and Bertrand Piccard (Breitling Orbiter Team) touched down in the Egyptian desert after a gruelling journey begun 20 days earlier amid the snow-capped peaks of Switzerland. Where 21 previous attempts have failed, they had triumphed… in flying non-stop around the world in a balloon.
Hear about how the 3 week journey saw war, storms, ice and technical failure all threaten to bring the balloon – and their dreams – crashing to earth.
In his talk, Brian Jones tells how this, and the backing of a skilled and remarkable team, brought them to that moment of success in the Egyptian desert.
It’s an inspiring story. Emotional, intense and ultimately joyous.
After the talk Brian will be hosting a Q&A session and signing his book ‘The Greatest Adventure’ with proceeds going to Aerobility and the Winds of Hope Foundation.
