September 09, 2008

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- The hot-air balloon launch demonstration at Martinsburg Mall to promote the upcoming Spirit of America Over Martinsburg Air Show has been postponed to Wednesday due to a rainy forecast for today, event organizer Nic Diehl said.

The 6 p.m. Wednesday demonstration behind the mall includes power gliders and the launch of two hot-air balloons, weather permitting, Diehl said.

The Spirit of America Over Martinsburg Air Show will be held the weekend of Sept. 20-21 at Eastern West Virginia Regional Airport south of Martinsburg. The show will not include hot-air balloon launches as there will be several planes in the sky.
