Readington NJ Hot Air Balloon Festival (NJFOB)

Friday Morning Media - Flight/Tether


This morning at 5:30 AM the fog rolled in so we were grounded. Later on in the morning, the sun came out and some balloons took flight!

At 4:50 PM storms rolled in and it drizled a bit. When the rain stopped… The pilots were told to Get up and hot (Wind Rougher on ground level then 300+ ft above) with that 20 pilots flew and special shapes and Coorporate balloons tethered on field

I came to this topic thinking, I will just tag @BalloonChaser and be on my way however I didn’t even think that he would be making this thread!
Anyway, cool balloons, nice to see a mix up other than the classic RWA topics and a different form of Aviation that gets overlooked a lot.
