What a view! This air-to-ground overview depicts the launch sites of the International Balloon Fiesta. As this was the last day/event of the fiesta called 'Mass Ascension,' due to the shower passed through the area at the break of dawn, most of special shape balloons have canceled the flight. Still, as you can see, many balloons are now preparing for launch. This photograph was taken from "That a way" flown by David Bobel (N4508B) who took me to the air for the first time. I shall never forget this moment

Okay, here's a picture that is just beautiful to look at. It's not a typical, boring, close-up side-on shot of an airplane with an ugly or boring background like what we usually see on here. Thanks for the reward.
BTW New Mexico is always soooo beautiful!!!!!

I was there - on the ground. Crewed for a special shape that didn't fly that day. You can see two of the most popular special shapes in the right of the picture - Lily & Joey - the bees! The Target balloon, by the way, is called "Bullseye". Your shot is great in that it shows the rain to the north up by Bernalillo. There was lightning that day, also, which is why we didn't fly.
