Star Sponsors Endeavour Everest Balloon Adventure – Documentary Airing on BBC4

A bit of nostalgia here… back in 1991, in a field near the Nepalese hamlet of Gokya, Star Micronics sponsored the first (and only) successfully completed attempt of a hot air balloon ride to ever go over Mount Everest. For the cameraman and pilot in one of the balloons, the balloon flight was to settle old scores after several previous attempts and life-threatening crashes.

To celebrate this over the Christmas period BBC4, a UK TV channel will be airing Endeavour: Everest, on Monday 30th December at 9.50pm; a documentary following their successful flight over the finest panorama on earth in the oldest of flying machines.
