A really big day for the Two Eagles Balloon Team as our capsule was installed in the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum

FAI - World Air Sports Federation

At the end of race Day 2 of the 59th Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett, the teams ESP 01 (Gonzales/Aguirre Gas Balloon Team González-Aguirre) and USA 02 (White/Sullivan FLY GAS) mark the golden and silver position. As the teams reported, both landed safely in Eastern Poland, close to the border of Belorussia.

But watch out for the 2014 champions team GER 01 (Eimers/Zenge Gordon Bennett Team Eimers / Zenge) who keep on fighting with challenging weather conditions on a track with still might take them a little further North compared to the two leading teams.

Who will make it ultimately? Is it GER 01 or ESP 01 or USA 02 who will win? All of these three certainly are some of the World's top gasballoon pilots. But, don't forget the dedicated and committed teams following. Some of them are winners in previous races:
- Team SUI 01 (Frieden/Witprächtiger Gordon Bennett Gasballonteam Frieden - Witprächtiger) became third in the Gordon Bennett 2013 in Nancy, France and twice second place in 2009 and 2012 - and won in 2010 in Bristol!
- Team BEL 01 (De Cock/Peirsman Gas Balloon Team Belgium United), where the first pilot was winning with Ronny Van Havere the Gordon Bennett in 2006 in Waasmunster, Belgium.

All pilots entering their third night into the race are fighting for the title of champion and all to be taken very seriously. We can be happy to watch these brave pilots from our chairs and enjoy the enjoy the thrill as it continuous to develop. The pilots are showing true airmanship, true character and a remarkable performance. The tension remains high - This is air sports at its best. Who will finally make it to the podium? For sure, they all deserve it!

In 2005, I announced this project at the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum. I had a press conference on the back patio with the capsule as a back drop. Ten years later the capsule returns to the Balloon Museum as a display piece from our successful record-shattering voyage. The project has gone from a dream to history. It is a great day!

Mais informações sobre o pouso e resgate do Balão Two Eagles

Albuquerque, NM, sábado, 1/31/15 10:00 MST (1700 UTC)

A equipe de controle da missão ouviu de autoridades e da equipe de resgate no México que os dois pilotos do Two Eagles Troy Bradley e Leonid Tiukhtyaev (tiuktieYEV) foram apanhados por um barco de pesca e levados para a costa. Eles estão bem, mas foram checados por paramédicos como precaução. A equipe de resgate está trabalhando com as autoridades mexicanas no resgate da cápsula e do equipamento a partir do local de pouso na água a cerca de quatro milhas da costa, perto de La Poza Grande, em Baja California, México.
A equipe do Controle da Missão está feliz que o voo tenha chegado a um final seguro e bem sucedido. Gostaríamos de agradecer especialmente à Governadora do estado norte americano do Novo México Suzanna Martinez por facilitar os contatos com as autoridades do México que estão tendo um papel vital no esforço de resgate em curso. O Prefeito de Albuquerque Richard Berry está atualmente deslocado com a nossa Equipe de Resgate na área de Baja e confirmou que eles têm contato visual com o balão e que os pilotos estão seguros. Está claro para nós com base em na comunicação com as autoridades mexicanas que a presença do prefeito está facilitando os nossos esforços e estamos gratos por sua participação.
Agradecemos especialmente ao Secretario de Turismo do estado da Baja California Óscar Escobedo por seu apoio. Ele reuniu esforços com o Subsecretário de Turismo Ricardo Garcia em Baja California Sur , e juntos moveram todos os recursos possíveis disponíveis para a nossa equipe de resgate em Baja.
Sujeito a ratificação, a equipe do Two Eagles superou tanto os recordes de distância e de duração de voo em balões a gás. A distância alcançada pela equipe de 6.646 milhas (10.696 km) superou o recorde existente de 5208 milhas (8383 km), definida pelo Balão Double Eagle V dos pilotos Ben Abruzzo, Larry Newman, Ron Clark, e Rocky Aoki em 1981, em 27%. A equipe permaneceu em voo durante 160 horas, 38 minutos (6 dias, 16 horas e 38 minutos), superando em 17% o recorde anterior, de 137 horas, 5 minutos e 50 segundo definidos em 1978 por Ben Abruzzo, Maxie Anderson, e Larry Newman a bordo do Double Eagle II.
Vamos continuar a fornecer atualizações via o website em www.twoeaglesballoonteam.com e através de nossos sites de mídia social. Agradecemos a todos ao redor do mundo por terem ajudado e apoiado o voo Two Eagles.

Update on Two Eagles Landing and Recovery

Albuquerque, NM, Saturday, 1/31/15 10:00 AM MST (1700 UTC)
The Mission Control team has heard from officials and the recovery team in Mexico that Two Eagles pilots Troy Bradley and Leonid Tiukhtyaev (two-kh-TIE-yev) have been picked up by a fishing boat and taken to shore. They are fine, but are being checked out onshore by paramedics as a precaution. The recovery team is working with Mexican authorities on retrieving the capsule and equipment from the landing location in the water about four miles offshore near La Poza Grande in Baja California.

The Mission Control team is delighted that the flight has come to a safe and successful conclusion. We would especially like to thank New Mexico Governor Suzanna Martinez for facilitating contacts with authorities in Mexico that are playing a vital role in the ongoing recovery effort. Mayor Richard Berry is presently deployed with our Recovery Team in the Baja area and has confirmed they have a visual on the balloon and that the pilots are safe. It is clear to us based on upon our communication with the Mexican officials that the Mayor’s presence is facilitating our efforts and we are grateful for his participation.

We especially thank Baja California Tourism Secretary Óscar Escobedo of the state of Baja California for his support. He enlisted the efforts of Tourism Undersecretary Ricardo Garcia in Baja California Sur (South), and they have made every possible resource available to our recovery team in Baja.

Subject to ratification, the Two Eagles team has surpassed both the distance and duration records for gas balloons. The team’s distance of 6,646 miles (10,696 km) surpassed the existing record of 5,208 miles (8,383 km), set by Double Eagle V pilots Ben Abruzzo, Larry Newman, Ron Clark, and Rocky Aoki in 1981, by 27%. The team stayed aloft for 160 hours, 38 minutes (6 days, 19 hours, 38 minutes), besting by 17% the previous record of 137 hours, 5 minutes, 50 seconds set in 1978 by Ben Abruzzo, Maxie Anderson, and Larry Newman aboard the Double Eagle II.

We will continue to provide updates via the website at www.twoeaglesballoonteam.com and through our social media websites. We thank everyone around the world who has helped with and supported the Two Eagles flight.

Balloon flight sets duration and distance records - CNN.com

#TwoEagles Balloon Team In the News

The record of 137 hours, 5 minutes, 50 seconds was set by Double Eagle II on a 1978 transatlantic flight. According to rules set by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale, the record must be surpassed by 1% in order to qualify as a new record. The Two Eagles reached that point Friday at 10:51 a.m. ET.

Balloon crew makes history crossing Pacific Ocean

#TwoEagles Balloon Team In the News

The Two Eagles pilots surpassed the distance and duration records that have held since the 1970s and 1980s, and were aiming Friday for a safe landing somewhere on a beach in Mexico's Baja California peninsula.

oleantimesherald.com ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A pair of American and Russian pilots has traveled farther and longer in a gas balloon than anyone in history, trying to eliminate any remaining debate over a century of records in long-distance ballooning.

#TwoEagles Balloon Team News Release

Olá,
A equipe de balonismo Two Eagles tem o prazer de informar que o balão Two Eagles aterrou com segurança ao largo da costa de Baja perto de La Poza Grande. Os pilotos fizeram uma descida controlada e um pouso suave na água a cerca de quatro milhas da costa de Baja. O balão está estável e ainda inflado e os pilotos estão muito bem.

Ventos nos níveis inferiores ficaram paralelo à costa, o que tornou mais prudente para os pilotos executarem o pouso na água. As autoridades mexicanas estão cooperando totalmente e a Guarda Costeira está em rota para chegar ao balão. Prevemos que eles vão rebocar a cápsula até a costa.

Gostaríamos de salientar que um pouso na água é aceitável sob as regras internacionais que regem o estabelecimento de recordes mundiais. Duas tentativas de volta ao mundo utilizando um tipo diferente de balão pousaram na água e tiveram seus registros aprovados.

O pouso ocorreu aos seis dias, 16 horas e 37 minutos da missão (aproximadamente 7h01 MST ou 14:00 UTC) a uma distância de 6646 milhas (10,696 km).

Mais detalhes a seguir.
