Oregon Lawn Chair Pilot.

Last weekend, Oregon gas station owner Kent Couch took off on a 193 mile solo flight -in a lawn chair attached to 105 helium balloons! He took along food and drinks, a bb gun, and a parachute. His flight, reminiscent of Larry Walters flight in 1982, reached an altitude of 13,000 feet and lasted nine hours. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/O/OR_FLYING_LAWN_CHAIR_OROL-?SITE=ORSAL&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT -via Fark

The image is from the movie Danny Deckchair (2003).

no, the mythbusters CONFIRMED it. just cause it was on the show doesn't mean it was busted.

besides, how do you end up busting something that was reported by 5 airline pilots, videotaped, and the man got a citation from the FAA over? it already happened, they were just seeing how.
