Seorang Petualang menjadi orang pertama kali yang terbang di Selat Inggris menggantung di bawah balon udara. Saat ini dirinya berencana untuk menyeberangi Samudera Atlantik.

Jonathan Trappe, berencana untuk melakukan perjalanan 2.500 mil pada saat musim panas mendatang. Dia akan menggunakan alat yang diterbangkan dengan 365 balon udara.

Alat aneh ini akan memiliki atap terbuka dengan kanopi untuk melindungi dirinya dari ketinggian angin dan juga dinginnya embun.

Jonathan akan mengudara di ketinggian18.000 dan 25.000 kaki dan dia mengalahkan rekor sebelumnya dari 21.600 kaki. Pria berusia 38 tahun ini akan terbang sepuluh kali lebih jauh dari rekor sebelumnya 230 mil.

Sebuah masker dan tabung oksigen akan digunakan setelah ia mencapai 25.000 kaki. Jonathan terbang dari Inggris ke Belgia pada Mei 2010 dengan balon udara seperti karakter kartun Carl Fredricksen dari film Disney Up.

“Saya sudah berlatih untuk waktu yang lama. Hal ini sangat menarik menurut saya,” ujar pria dari North Carolina itu, seperti dikutip The Sun, Jumat (9/11/2012).

Perjalanan panjang ini akan difilmkan oleh kru kamera dokumenter, Jonathan akan berangkat dari Maine di Amerika Serikat (AS) menuju Paris, Perancis.

Empat orang ahli meteorologi akan bekerja untuk memantau dari pusat komando di Wyoming untuk membantu memastikan Trappe tiba dengan selamat.
