Ballooning had been taken up in the Edwardian era, and balloon meetings and races became all the rage among the rich young people. The greatest of these races was the annual long distance race organized by the American publishing tycoon Gordon Bennett. Started in 1906 these continued with great success until the outbreak of the Second World War.
