Man uses party balloons to float 15 miles

Recommended Posts

Looks like fun! (and a bit scarey)

But think of the experience!

That was great, look well planed, well prepared, lots of support, and in a remote area away from Air Traffic, great outcome.

Spectacular views floating across the veld, absolute beauty

The clip didn't show how he got back down - did he pop some balloons or untie them?

Helium has a short efficacy - I'd imagine he came down naturally.  Popping would have been fun though!

Looks like that was fun. But, there was a merry old Englishman who flew his entire house thousands of miles to a different country...

Oh, wait. That was a cartoon wasn't it? :laugh:
