Publisher's Summary

Sunday, October 10, 2004. It is the 10th and final day of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Bill Chapel, 69, pilots the "Smokey the Bear" balloon, a favorite in the fiesta for the past 11 years. His passengers are Aaron Whitacre, 10, and Troy Wells, 14. Suddenly, a shift in winds causes the balloon to crash into a 670-foot radio tower. The balloon is hopelessly entangled on top of the tower.
