The Rocky Mountain Airshow included the Balloon Fest for the first time this year. It was a great success! The Western Spirit Balloon pilot and crew participated in the Media flight on Friday morning along with Smokey Bear, Tetrahedron and The World Balloon. Our media guest was Mahala from the Denver Post. We had a great flight and landed in Interlocken Business Park. Although the illum on Friday night morphed into "Candles in the Night" the crowd loved getting up close and personal with the balloon crews and pilots.
Saturday morning proved too windy to fly but all the balloon crews enjoyed a day at the Airshow!
Sunday morning was just beautiful and a perfect flight day! Jon flew Shannon and Kevin! The Western Spirit flew almost side by side of the Flying Italian (John and Brian Capone) they both "buzzed" the tower at the end of the 29 runway. What a treat! We had a great landing in a field next to Heritage Golf Course. The crew enjoyed the remainder of the airshow including up close shots of the F-22 Raptor.
