Couch Balloons – Kent Couch's Cluster Balloon Trip to Idaho

July 5th, 2008

Taking off at dawn July 5th, 2008, cluster balloon world record holder, Kent Couch, took off for his third and longest trip with 100 helium balloons strapped to his lawn chair.  I had a unique opportunity to shoot his takeoff from the KOHD news helicopter.  It was wild ride shooting out the side without any doors on and just a seatbelt holding me in!
