this hot air balloon lands in the middle of the road!

Motorists traveling on a highway in Texas witnessed the incredible emergency landing of a hot air balloon that was in distress.

Each year, the Great Texas Balloon Race brings together dozens of hot air balloons to the delight of their pilots and spectators.

Canceled last year due to the health crisis, the event that was created in the 70s could be organized again this year. This video was taken on June 19 in Longview, on route 281. Des motorists who were circulating noticed that something was not going as planned. Indeed, a sinking hot air balloon was making a emergency landing… Right in the middle of the road!

More wind

Balloon pilot Pat Cannon said the wind suddenly stopped blowing, forcing him to find a place to be able to to pose

. The nearby road was the ideal place to make your landing, but the presence of trees and electric cables greatly complicated the maneuver. Fortunately, Cannon, from Lewisville, Texas, is a hell of a pilot! Thanks to his talent and his calm, he managed to land the hot-air balloon without hindrance in the middle of the road and the cautious reactions of motorists avoided any incident.

That could have been much more serious!
