For the first time in the world, a full size model of the Breitling L-39 Albatros jet will be baptized on Wednesday, September 26th 2007 at 7pm in the first floor of renowned Viennese jeweller Wagner on Kärntnerstrasse 32, 1010 Vienna.

In order to get the 10 x 12 meter large plane model via crane to the presentation area in the first floor, parts of the glass façade had to be detached from the jewellery shop.

Jacques Bothelin, founder and leader of the Breitling Jet team, shall be the godfather, he will christen the airplane "Skyracer". Austrian celebrity Harry Raithofer will host and moderate the ceremony.

Flying will be the theme of the evening: air controllers will lead the way to the event, guests will be received by stewardesses at a check-in counter, the entire jewellery store will be decorated accordingly and spectacular flight scenes will be shown on monitors throughout the shop.

200 VIPs are expected to attend.
