ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Day 3 of Balloon Fiesta hit a little bit of a snag Monday morning. Wind pushed things back and crews weren't given the green light for liftoff until after 7:45 a.m.


But it was still a gorgeous day, especially as seen from Chopper 4. Make sure to join Danielle Todesco, Colton Shone and of course, Steve Stucker, starting at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday morning for the latest.

Meanwhile, pilots in the America's Challenge gas balloon race are racking up the miles. The competitors launched Saturday from Balloon Fiesta Park with no issue. Gas balloons are much different than the hot air balloons. They use helium or hydrogen to get off the ground and can travel for days at a time.

We've gotten some great viewer photos from Balloon Fiesta so far. Share yours using #kob4balloons, or upload (and see them) here:
