Janet Folkes Chateau d'Oex, Swiss Alps
explain

Janet Folkes took the new University of Nottingham hot air balloon for its maiden flight at Chateau d'Oex in the Swiss Alps.

It was a spectacular setting and I was lucky enough to be in the basket with her for the big moment.

My fiance Kylie was on the ground filming the flight also, so a big thanks to her. The video above shows just some of the amazing footage we captured on a very beautiful and memorable day.
