The 35th Annual Great Wellsville Balloon Rally

7/19/2010 01:11:00 PM ·


Hot Air Balloonists Converge on Western New York for Annual Rally. It began just three and one-half decades ago; an invitational event for aviators of small aircraft to fly-in from around the region on a pre-determined date and time, to meet and share breakfast. Pilots of small aircraft would be invited to fly their craft to the Wellsville, NY airport on the outskirts of town for this proposed social event limited to just pilots of small aircraft.

Born in the spirit of the fanciful barnstorming adventure movie "The Great Waldo Pepper" (1975, starring Robert Redford,) "The Fly-in Breakfast" was born, an event hosted by the Wellsville (NY) Aviation Club.
