Flying High: Datum RPO hot air balloon amongst the 170 that set new UK record at Longleat Safari Park

19 September 2018

From Friday 14th - Sunday 16th September, Longleat Safari Park staged the UK's largest hot air balloon festival, with a record-high of 170 hot air balloons rising into the air, covering the Wiltshire sky with vibrant colours and obscurely-shaped inflatables (including Longleat's own lion, a wolf named Wes, a household battery and even an oversized Hunter wellie). 

The perfect early-morning autumnal weather helped pilots and their crews smash the previous record of 130, with Longleat writing history and being placed in the hot air balloon hall of fame.  

Over the weekend, over 200 hot air balloons were on show, piloted and helped by crews from nine different countries.

Datum RPO's hot air balloon was amongst the 170 afloat, together with Datum employee Ashley Moore's majestic-looking wolf, #WesTheWolf

Our passion for hot air ballooning goes way back to early 2000's, and has since become one of the backbones to Datum RPO's brand exposure.
