Lee Morgan is responsible for organizing the aircraft permitted into the restricted airspace, by the Balloon Fiesta Officials during these special events such as the Balloon Glow and Special Shapes Rodeo. The restricted flight area, known as a TFR (Temporary Flight Restriction) area, extends 3 nautical miles from the center of the field, starting at ground level and up to 3000′ above ground.
Bear in mind Lee creates these images while hand-holding the camera and moving through the air at 80 mph, 1,300 feet above the ground, in the dark, from a fixed-wing airplane. The images are taken immediately following sunset to eliminate the long shadows created by the huge balloons. For those of you wondering how Lee flies and shoots at the same time–safely–he always utilizes a safety pilot to operate the controls and watch for any unauthorized aircraft in the area.
