Short Historical facts with me, Charlotte 👩🏻‍💻

fact no.16


On this day, 39 years ago, marks the historical event of “first transatlantic balloon trip”! :D. This was completed by three Americans;

Max Anderson, Ben Abruzzo, and Larry Newman.

All originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. All 3 men started from Maine on August 11th 1978 where they then traveled in the Double Eagle II hot air balloon and they covered over 3,000 miles within just 137 hours. Finishing they then landed about 60 miles west of Paris. This was to be the memorable moment known as the “first transatlantic balloon trip”.

With love, Charlotte x
