2010's Gordon Bennett Organisers welcome the Press

On Thursday 10th June the Organising Committee of the 2010 Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett held a press conference in the main chamber at Bristol City Council House. The "top table" speeches were given by Dr Janet Folkes, David Hempleman-Adams, Anthony Smith and Don Cameron. A demonstration of hot-air ballooning (rather than gas ballooning) was given on College Green, and various video clips were followed by a question-and-answer session.
