Luxembourg’s National Balloon team at the World Air Games in Dubai

Published Tuesday December 08 2015

The Luxembourg National Air Balloon team is participating in the World Air Games in Dubai this year. Two crews are participating in the competitions which started on December 6, 2015. They are accompanied by Mr Carlo Lecuit, the President of the Fédération aéronautique luxembourgeoise, support teams and a whole group of fans.

Strong winds suspended the competitions for two days which allowed the team to attend the concert of Jean Muller organised by the Embassy at the Ismaili Centre in Dubai to celebrate the end of Luxembourg’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

We wish them the very best of luck!
