Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Southwestern Swing: The Aero Experience Visits Albuquerque, NM

By Fred Harl
The Aero Experience occasionally wanders outside of the Midwest to visit interesting places, and on a recent trip to Albuquerque, NM we landed at the Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum. The museum is made possible through a partnership of the museum's foundation and the City of Albuquerque. It opened in 2005, and is named for Albuquerque aeronauts Maxie Anderson and Ben Abruzzo. The museum covers ballooning history from the first recorded balloon flight in 1783 to the present with displays of scaled and actual ballooning equipment and through interactive presentations and events. It is also located on the grounds of Balloon Fiesta Park, where over 600 balloons gather every October.
