NSP photobombs Old West Balloon Fest, fan suggests photo for contest

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. -- The Nebraska State Patrol is sharing some views of a lot of hot air. 

The Old West Balloon Fest and Balloon Championships took off in the Scottsbluff area Tuesday morning. 

Sergeant Copp with NSP was in the right spot to see them as the sun came up. 

The images led someone on social media to suggest they save the pictures for next year's State Patrol Calendar Contest. 

This year's contest has already wrapped up. The calendars for 2022 will go on sale in September at the State Trooper website: statetroopers.org
