Lawnchair Man

You may remember that fellow that flew around in a lawnchair under a bunch of weather balloons in 1982. But did you know he shot to 16,000 feet?

Audio transcript between our intrepid aviator and his girlfriend/ground crew chief.

Her: "Can you see us? Over."
Him: "Carol, I'm almost 6,000 feet. Over. I can't see much of anything but a bunch of houses. Over."
