Words can’t describe the feeling that you get when breaking free from the earth, although some of these pictures might come close to doing it justice. On top of that, every now and then the stars line up, and a good day of flying presents some awesome photo opportunities. One of those opportunities presented itself while i was taking N8857B to I73 to show a potential buyer. Shortly after landing at I73 and parking, a truck and trailer stopped me and asked if I would be there long. I told them I’d be there 30 minutes to an hour, when they said they were launching a hot air balloon, and it should only take 30 minutes. What are the chances that it would be the exact same colors as N8857B? Well, it was. Here are a couple pictures that i was able to grab. Yes, the Smiles are contagious!
The smiles are even more contagious than they look!
