Tashi made her first flying appearance of 2018 at the XXX Raduno Aerostatico Internationzale dell’Epifania held at Mondovi in north west Italy over the weekend of January 5-7.
Sadly the poor weather conditions in Europe meant that Tashi was only able to take to the air once before the event was cancelled.
The only flight of the meeting took place on a cold grey morning flying with 32 other balloons. We took the opportunity of a weather break to fly above the clouds with selected other balloons and we thank the pilots for their spectacular pictures of Tashi flying in the sunshine.
We were also able to tether in the fog for the benefit of the spectators that had come to watch. Tashi always shines brightly for the people of Tibet, no matter what the weather.
