Smokey Bear

Remark
Photographer
N87SB (cn SPI-3001) 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. An extremely scary incident for the pilot and his two passengers. You can see the two passengers already making their way down the tower and the pilot stepping from the basket onto the tower. Note that everybody was safe and unharmed. A freak windshear is suspected to be the cause of the accident.
