Adventurer attaches 55 helium balloons to an office chair to soar to 15,000 feet | Mail Online

Attaching 55 helium balloons to his trusty office chair, adrenaline junkie Jonathan Trappe managed to soar to nearly 15,000 feet.

After spending two years in training and upwards of £45,000 on the adventure, this was the technical project manager's first ever cluster balloon flight.

In scenes reminiscent of the film Up – in which an explorer floats his house using helium balloons – Mr Trappe fulfilled his long-held daydream of breaking free from his desk and taking to the skies.
