Aerostar SPI - Smokey Bear
This photo is copyright protected and may not be used in any way without proper permission.
The Smokey Bear special-shape hot-air balloon unfortunately got caught then shredded on the top of this 700-foot radio antenna on the last day of the 2004 International Balloon Fiesta. The pilot and two passengers were forced to climb from the basket and down the tower. The emergency services reacted fast and professionally and can be seen here with their cherry-picker at the base of the tower.
