A lot of news lately of hot air balloons flying dangerously low over homes in Sw! One video on YouTube posted last week shows balloon doing splash and dash on water hazard at 18th green on Rhodes Ranch golf course! Basket actually skims water!!. How nuts is this! Clear violation of FAA REGULATIONS. Channel 13 covering this.

That water skimming appears to "be a thing". Look how good I am. Saw it down at lake havasu a few years back.

That said, the SW corner area of 215 used to have lots of open spaces to land, but the building boom restarted about 2-3 years ago and it's getting more limited every day. The open spaces near our offices are used quite often for landings.
