SCARBOROUGH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) – What looked to some as a near miss, was actually an on target landing.
Some passersby looked to the sky Saturday morning on the Broadturn Road in Scarborough and though a balloon was coming close to homes. Joe Shevenell, owner of Hot Fun Balloons Flights, said a woman had purchased the balloon ride for her mother's 90th birthday party and got the ride of her life.
Shevenell said the landing in the front yard was planned as part of the birthday celebration.
Shevenell said it was a beautiful morning for this sort of ride and was exactly what the customer wanted.
