Follow the story of Bristol balloonists Phil and Allie Dunnington and their fixed wing team as they will attempt to balloon in places where nobody has ever flown a hot air balloon before! Will Phil - with his world record of 112 countries - bag in some more exotic places? Will 'Betty the Beech' manage the vast distances over Greenland and northern Canada? How will this mixed team work together in continuously changing and challenging situations?

off by friends and media!
Thanks so much for everybody involved in getting this
project finally off the ground!
