Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - Albuquerque, NM 62 degrees mostly sunny to 84 degrees and changing afternoon to a shower and wind blowing. We went to the main Balloon launch field today for our crews’ orientation (video and discussion) and finding the assigned balloon launch location. There were about five balloons aloft thismorning.

That is a large launch field with a alpha numeric grid we are assigned to a Pilot Gary Born # 336 on Q 8 launch spot. Q 8 is in the green area right of the Pilot Briefing yellow spot, lower left corner.
