Flag City Balloon Festival - Findlay, Ohio August 14-16th, 2009

We are always thrilled to be invited to Flag City. It is an excellent event with friendly people, and great organization so everyone is in a good mood. Plus, there is no entrance fee for spectators.

'Freedom' takes flight!


A couple of racing balloons get ready to take off.

America One takes off for a beautiful flight. The new truck looks good, too.


Landing in a nice wide open space after flying across the city of Findlay.


We had several Marine recruits as crew for the weekend. Several were surprised when they got to fly in America One.



Some of our future Marine crew.



Friday evening we overflew the town again and landed in a small housing development surrounded by crops.


We got to watch the other balloons fly as we packed everything away.


Saturday morning we took off from a local high school in town.



The reflection of the balloon is on the side of the school.


Barry discusses inflation strategies with our Findlay crew chief, Brad Hertel.









We landed about 100 feet from the space we landed in on Friday morning.


Carlie Hertel made this wonderful cake! Excellent job. Yum!

BBQ & a trailer washing at Brad & Amy's house. Good food, friends and more fun!

Suzie hangs out on the lawn.

Brad's staff shirt from 2003 hangs in his garage. That's dedication.

  Thanks once again to everyone at the Flag City Balloon Festival. We always have a wonderful time and things go smoothly. Yours is a great community event.
