Competition in Full Swing at National Balloon Classic
INDIANOLA, Iowa -- Pilots from across the country are competing in the 2018 National Balloon Classic. Hot air balloon competitions are judged based on accuracy, rather than speed. Each morning at 6:00 a.m. pilots receive different tasks for the day's competition. One includes dropping a marker on a target; the closer the marker to the target, the more points the pilot receives.
