The Scene

Photographed from below, a balloon, tethered to the ground, floats in the sky about 70 feet above the ground at Interstate 275 and the Hillsborough River in Tampa. It was one of many objects - balloons, blimps, helicopters, and planes that were floating, flying and hovering above Tampa for Super Bowl Sunday. The balloon, piloted by Richard Davenport and David Fuller, was later forced to land due to the wind.
