NACY, FRANCE (EBU/NBC) -

Hundreds of hot air balloons fill the sky over France, soaring straight into the record books.

433 hot air balloons took part in the record-breaking event Sunday.

The balloons, which included some with spectacular designs, took off from an air base in northeastern France.

As a whole, the group beat the previous record for simultaneous hot air balloon flights.

The previous record was set in the same place when 391 balloons took part in 2013.
