Balloon race takes competitive flight Thursday

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - This morning's mostly clear skies gave way to dozens of balloons over Longview.

The U.S. Hot Air Balloon National Championships took its first competitive flight today -- after two days of overcast skies that grounded the race.

Spectators watched from highways and parking lots to catch a glimpse of the pilots -- as they tried to reach three targets in southwest Longview.
