Daredevil Floats to France

Daredevil Floats to France

Jonathan Trappe became the first person to drift across the English Channel using helium balloons (video). The 36-year-old daredevil made the 22-mile crossing in a chair attached to a bundle of 54 colorful, industrial-strength balloons. Once over France, Trappe cut away a few of the balloons in order to descend. See The Telegraph for more pioneers who found novel ways to cross the Channel.
