Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta 2017 from London City Airport

At 7.00am on Sunday 10 September 2017, twenty-seven hot air balloons lifted off from the runway of London City Airport as part of the 2017 RICOH Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta, rising to 1000 ft above and travelling over East London, before dispersing and landing.

For the first time since the regatta began in 2015, it launched from London City Airport, this year forming part of the 30th birthday celebrations for the airport, which opened in 1987.

The regatta is an aerial extension of the historic Lord Mayor’s Show and is designed to raise awareness of, and funds for, the Lord Mayor’s Appeal – brought to life by Exclusive Ballooning.
