Ten years ago today: Swiss adventurer sets FAI World Record with home-built balloon

Swiss pilot Pierrick Duvoisin set a new world record in hot air ballooning by flying for 6 hours, 20 minutes and 38 seconds within the Valley of Brévine (SUI). The previous record was set by an Austrian with a duration of 2 hours and 50 minutes – the record is still valid today!
