Gordon Bennett Cup
In the race, 3 gas balloons entered Belarusian air space. The organisers had informed Belarus about the race in May and flight plans had been filed. The crews of the other two balloons, one of which was forced to land, were fined for entering Belarus without a visa and released. Afterwards, Belarus did not apologise or offer compensation.
