Man flies over South Africa in a chair strapped to balloons

PAYRS, South Africa (NBC) - As the lyrics by The Ventures go, ‘up up and away in my beautiful balloon.’
A British adventurer flew 15 miles across South Africa in a camping char tied to a bunch of large party balloons.
Tom Morgan took a scene out of the Pixar movie ‘Up’ with his adventure. He reached an altitude of over 8,300 feet. Morgan described the experience as ‘peaceful and terrifying in equal measure.’
He landed back on solid ground after about two hours, having had to pop the balloons as he received reports of strong winds moving in.
Morgan, up for more adventure, says he plans to organize ‘the world’s most ridiculous air race’ and said the flight left him more convinced than ever about the feasibility of the event.
