Hot Air Balloon Racing

An unexpected aerobatics session through hot air balloons w/ Kirby Chambliss.

In the United States, June 5 is National Hot Air Balloon Day. On this day in 1909, Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) held its first ever event – a hot air balloon race. To commemorate this past milestone, and in anticipation of the upcoming round of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship at IMS on October 6 and 7, pilot Kirby Chambliss decided to incorporate hot air balloons into his training regimen. He took to the skies at dawn above his Phoenix, AZ, home, chicaning through the balloons on the ground, similar to the chicanes he races through in the Red Bull Air Race. Once the balloons were released into the air, Kirby got a bit more creative, performing aerobatics above, around and through the balloons. Chambliss will head to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for round 7 of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship on October 6 and 7. Tickets are available at

Skydivers Play on the ULTIMATE Mega Swing

►CLICK for more Mega Swing madness:
Take four skydivers, two hot air balloons, a 125m long rope with a seat on the end, climb to 1,800m in a hot air balloon...and this is what you get – MEGA SWING, the physical realization of that childhood dream we all have. It's the dream of everyone, Lettner says. To swing higher and higher, and finally jump off and fly.

We just wanted to go bigger, says Austrian, Marco Waltenspiel, who with fellow skydivers Georg Lettner, Marco Fürst and Dominic Roithmair made this project happen.

GREAT TEXAS BALLOON RACE

One of the greatest sites ever

Honor Flight

In August 2015 at the Great Texas Balloon Race in Longview, TX balloonists from around the country honored friend and fellow balloonist Kinnie Gibson.

Kinnie's balloon was inflated on the festival field along with six balloons piloted by some of his closest friends. The six balloons took off in a missing man formation, leaving Kinnie's balloon inflated on the field. As Kinnie's balloon was deflated, balloonists and friends from around the country moved in to pack his balloon for a final time, together.

A moving tribute for a man with a lifelong passion for hot air ballooning.
