Two Eagles Balloon Documentary

Premier screening

Feb 4, 2016

On January 25, 2015, two experienced gas balloonists — one from Albuquerque, one from Moscow — launched their bid for a place in the record books. Troy Bradley and Leonid Tiukhtyaev lifted off from a tarmac in Japan in the Two Eagles gas balloon, the culmination of a years-long dream to break the two most coved world records in gas ballooning – for duration and distance.

The premiere of a documentary about their flight will be held at the KiMo Theatre on Saturday, February 6th at 7 pm. A reception will be held prior to the screening beginning at 6 pm. The premiere screening of the documentary is free, but an online RSVP is required at A $5 donation is suggested and will benefit the Balloon Museum’s science and education programs.
