Hot Air Balloon Puts Down In Broken Arrow Neighborhood
Martin Philpott of Auspicious Balloon Flights said they took off at 71st Street in Broken Arrow and planned to land at a school but didn't quite make it.
"The school property was locked up and the winds were less than half a mile an hour," he said.
The pilot said it was abnormal in Oklahoma to have such slight winds this time of the day and safe to land in a neighborhood where the utilities are all underground.
Homeowners and children seemed thrilled by the event as crews deflated the colorful balloon. The couple who were celebrating their anniversary with a hot air balloon ride said it was an amazing experience.
