LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

People at a Longview apartment complex woke up to a surprise this morning.

Residents at Churchill apartments saw a hot air balloon setting down outside of their windows at around 8 a.m. Officials say this hot air balloon was out on a practice run this morning and decided to land in the apartment complex parking lot.

The pilots are getting their final weekend of practice in before the Great Texas Balloon Race which starts next week in Longview.
