Balloon Fiesta: Yellow flag for Farewell Mass Ascension
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — At Balloon Fiesta Park, a yellow flag was raised Sunday morning.
Pilots received the yellow flag around 6:20 a.m. on the last day of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, due to brisk winds from the north. Once the sun came up, a few balloons inflated for static display only.
Yellow flag still up. Strong winds aloft and at the surface. Candlestick glow at 7 a.m. with National Anthem— Balloon Fiesta (@balloonfiesta) October 15, 2023
