One of the special shapes from Albuquerque’s Balloon Fiesta has been stolen.

Owner and pilot Rick Walczak of Santiago, Chile says his balloon “Iwi the Kiwi” was recently taken.

Walczak says the balloon was not stolen in Albuquerque, but would not give many details on how or where it happened.

However, he says he has an idea on where it may be. 

“Iwi the Kiwi” has flown at Balloon Fiesta multiple times over the years, but had no plans on attending this year’s event.
