Boeing 737-700 (01-0015)

Submitted

With the first of over 90 hot air balloons rising into the moment-of-sunrise early morning sky in the background, this Boeing C-40B (01-0015) accelerates along 16R as it departs Reno after a weekend stay.

This was taken on the final morning of the annual Great Reno Balloon Race. Just as the sun pops into view over the Virginia Range Mountains east of the city, all the hot air balloons are launched from Rancho San Rafael Park for the Mass Ascension event, and some of them can be seen being inflated in the background. I have no idea who was on board the C-40B, but judging by all the other military aircraft that were also here (a Navy C-40, four Apache copters, a pair of Ospreys, this C-40B, and a chartered Sierra Pacific B735), the occupants of this government fleetbird were not here to watch hot air balloons. lol
