Playing In The Clouds: Every Boy's Dream

Kent Couch fulfilled his childhood dream last week when he was able to fly through a cloud... while sitting in a lawn chair suspended by a plethora of helium balloons and weighted down by water jugs. He flew around 193 miles in about 9 hours and he was even able to fly through a cloud he said.

This is not Couch's first flight-by-lawn chair, he attempted another flight which lasted for 6 hours but resulted in an emergency parachute landing.

Couch follows in the footsteps of Lawn Chair pilot Larry Walters and hopes to yet again attempt flight by lawn chair and avoid the FAA fine that Walters incurred.
