|Parachutists and the Air Force Academy Falcon at the Balloon Classic|
Below is a video I took of the 2014 Balloon Classic, an annual event held in Memorial Park near downtown Colorado Springs. This shows the Air Force Academy parachutists that dropped in at 8:30 a.m. and landed in Memorial Park.
The parachutists are kind of small in the sky, you can best view the below video in full screen mode. Seeing them from a bit of a distance actually gives a pretty good view of the surroundings and what it was really like there during their drop.
Below the video are various shots of the parachutists and the balloons that hover over town after the mass ascent at 7 a.m.
