TYB's official launch ceremony!
After a successful crowdfunding campaign (Than You backers!) and months of works in design and production, we could meet alltogether for organizing a nice official inflation in the airfield of Tallard, France. We thank all the people who came to help, the Mayor of Tallard and the Senator of our Region for assisting to the event, and for writing their messages on the TYB!
