Up In The Air

Posted by Boghound on January 27, 2010

Bumpy office ride

A US office worker attached 55 helium balloons to his work chair.

Jonathan Trappe flew 4,505 metres into the sky after tying dozens of the inflated objects onto the seat he uses everyday in the office.

Jonathan began his unusual trek near Raleigh airport in North Carolina.

He travelled over 100km during his three-hour journey before popping four balloons to lower him back to Earth.

He said: “The flight was very wobbly, especially in an average office chair.

“Every time you burst the balloon there follows a juddering shot.”

Each balloon is strong enough to lift 6kg into the air.

…………another “15 minutes of fame” artist then!!!
