Man using cluster balloons lands in Newfoundland
YORK HARBOR, Newfoundland (AP) — A balloonist who was trying to cross the Atlantic Ocean using hundreds of helium-filled balloons landed short of his goal in Newfoundland.
Jonathan Trappe reported that he was having trouble controlling his balloons before landing Thursday evening just south of York Harbor, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He touched down safely and required no medical attention.....more......
This doesn't look like France.....lol....
He should feel very lucky IMO!

The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy—a policy worthy of imitation......which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.......George Washington

When I was a kid I dreamed of doing this. (Well, not trans-Atlantic, LOL, but for just a little ways, anyhow!)
