Dawn Patrol began taking off just after 6:15 am and balloon officials said it’s going to be “perfect weather for flying” at the pilot meeting.
An Albuquerque Box is setting up and competition is a go, officials said.
Also from the pilot meeting, all five balloons in the America’s Challenge race are still flying. The first place team is 863 miles away, just west of Memphis, Tenn.
The balloons took off Sunday at 6 pm.
