Todi Precision Approaches

As every year at the Sagrantino Cup in Umbria, Italy, hot air balloon pilots attempt to fly over the town of Todi – situated on a hill and inhabited since Etruscan times. The most prominent feature is the church tower – the Campanile of San Fortunato . And of course, pilots vye to fly right over this tower. This year was no exception – I collected tracks from other pilots and here are the tracks (full screen version):

Matthias and myself came as close as a few meters:

David kindly sent me some pictures from this flight:

Here’s a video from my balloon OE-SOX passing over the campanile:
