Native of New Jersey and resident of Hunterdon County for the last 24 years, James Buzby will be flying his Buzz Off balloon. Shortly after moving to Union Township from Somerville, Jim and his family started chasing balloons casually in the evenings as so many people in this area often do. Jim began chasing for his friend, Rich Wiedenhaefer, pilot of the Strawberry Balloon. Rich agreed to give Jim some lessons and the love of ballooning began. Twelve years and two balloons later, Jim and his first-rate crew can be seen on beautiful evening and early morning flights in our area. “We love coming to the Warren County Farmers Fair every year. The people are great and the relaxed flying atmosphere is very enjoyable.” Jim recently retired and now has more time to devote to his favorite hobbies of skiing and ballooning.
