KENNEWICK, WA. - The hydroplanes are starting to arrive in the Tri-Cities and two of them spent Wednesday afternoon in our KNDU parking lot.

Many people stopped by to check out the U-1 Graham Trucking and the U-6 Oberto boats.

It wasn't a quick journey for the boats to get to the Tri-Cities. The truck driver for the U-6 Oberto boat drove here all the way from Madison, Indiana.

"(The drive is) not too bad, you just kind of take your time, most of the time we try to drive during the day time. You know at night, animals and different things, you don't want to take a chance on tearing something up, but it's not so bad," said Steve Dean, Oberto truck driver.

The two boats are some of the fastest in the world and both will be racing this weekend at the 49th Annual HAPO Columbia Cup.
