A man using a cluster of balloons launched a house just like in the Disney movie “Up.”
Jonathan Trappe, 38, launched a house into the sky and attempts to fly from Maine to Paris. If Trappe is successful in his attempt he would have crossed 2,5000 miles.
Trappe strapped the balloons onto a cartoon themed home and then soared over the Leon International festival in Mexico.
According to Trappe, the festival was his warm-up for his trans-Atlantic flight plan.
He plans to cross 2,500 miles using a seven foot lifeboat carried by 356 helium balloons.
