At approximately 6:30 on bright and sunny morning, adrenaline junkie Jonathan Trappe attached 55 balloons filled with helium to a steel cased office chair and soared to nearly 15,000 feet. It became his dream to break free from his desk and take to the skies after watching the movie UP. He managed to reach a height of some 14,783 feet while sitting in an office chair. He had to obtain an FAA license to fly helium balloons. Mr. Trappe rose in the sky at a rate of 521 feet per minute. Now, after the flight he still sits in the same chair at work. And you thought you had big cojones.
