Balloon Barrage: Fires at the Fiesta
Rio Rancho, NM (October 7, 2019): On Monday, two people suffered injuries after a hot air balloon struck a power line and ignited a fire. The gondola made a hard landing in Rio Rancho, NM. And this wasn’t the only accident of its kind. Many hundreds of hot air balloons took to the sky as part of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Unfortunately, some were in for a bumpy ride. In another incident, one pilot accidentally got caught on a tree and then a light pole, causing the pilot to engage in a forced landing.
