Colorado boy floats away in balloon

(CNN) -- Officials are trying to rescue a 6-year-old boy who climbed into a balloon-like experimental aircraft built by his parents and floated into the sky over eastern Colorado.

Deputies chase boy floating in balloon aircraft
Cops: 6-year-old takes off in family's experimental helium-balloon craft

FORT COLLINS. Colo. - Authorities were scouring the skies Thursday for a 6-year-old boy who reportedly unhooked his family's experimental balloon-powered aircraft and floated away from home, sheriff's officials said.

The Larimer County Sheriff's Department said the boy's family had been building an experimental aircraft that had a large helium balloon attached to it at their home, KUSA-TV reported. The aircraft was approximately 20 feet by 5 feet and covered in tin foil, the station said.

On Thursday morning, according to the family and officials, the boy got onto the aircraft and detached the rope holding it in place. Sheriff's spokeswoman Eloise Campanella said the boy climbed into the access door and the airborne device took off.

Several people in the neighborhood said they saw the aircraft floating over their homes and some snapped pictures.

Officials were scrambling to figure out how to rescue the boy.

The craft, which is shaped like a flying saucer, has the potential to rise to 10,000 feet, Campanella said. Sheriff's officials last saw the device floating south of Milliken, which is about 40 miles north of Denver.

So I'm watching the cnn.com feed of this and its just some guy holding a camera in a hot air balloon panning the sky.

I'm afraid this kid is going to be in the air for a long time.

And I'll keep a lookout for him if he floats over Denver. I don't have my bb gun with me, though.

It depends on the person, but it's more like 14,000 feet. Plus, this is a CO kid, so he's used to rarefied air.

I think you're required to start taking occasional oxygen when you get about 10,000 feet, but people hike in the mountains much higher than that without having problems. I was just at 12,000 feet last month. You just get out of breath easier.

I'm wondering though if they mean 10,000 feet above the ground or 10,000 feet above sea level. Either way, it's not fatal in and of itself. His bigger risk is passive-aggressive market researchers with bb guns.

He's actually only 2500 feet in the air right now. But the bottom of that thing is made out of plywood. So, he's gonna need some serious help when that thing comes down. Otherwise, he's probably in a world of trouble.

What would the temperature be up there, though? Freezing? Those parents are a-holes for letting the kid do that. If you're gonna have something like that around you better make sure the kid stays away or it's secure. Just freaking stupid. I hope they get him down somehow.

I wonder if you could blow it downward with the downdraft of a big helicopter. Whether that's good or bad, I don't know.

Otherwise, I think it'll be hard to secure it with a hook or anything, and I don't think you'd want to throw a grapple into it and collapse the balloon quickly.

BB gun. I think that's the way to go. This is where calculus comes in handy. I bet some professor is all jazzed up right now figuring out how big a hole you'd need to have the thing land softly.

Now I'll have to go out and license every single one of my balloon powered experimental aircraft. And most likely they'll make them all subject to new safety regulations. Safety belt laws, air bags, roll cages, extra mouthguards for the mother fucking chickens.

Dude. It's not just being a ballooning expert. You've got to specialize in the field.


From NPR:
MELISSA BLOCK, host:

It's been four days since a Brazilian priest lifted off into the air, harnessed to hundreds of brightly colored helium balloons. Reverend Adelir Antonio de Carli was staging the flight as a fundraiser for charity. But strong winds pulled him off course out to sea. He used a satellite phone to tell his team he was descending over the ocean. He hasn't been heard from or seen since, but a cluster of balloons was found floating in the Atlantic.

We were curious about this sport of cluster ballooning and we've reached out to John Ninomiya in San Diego to find out more. And John, I gather that you are a part of a very tiny community of cluster balloonists.

Mr. JOHN NINOMIYA (Ballooning Expert): That's correct. To my knowledge, there are about three people who have - who do cluster ballooning on a continuing basis worldwide and then there are a few people here and there who have done one or two flights.

BLOCK: And had you heard about this priest in Brazil before?

Mr. NINOMIYA: Yes, I had. I actually received an e-mail from a gentleman, a hot air balloonist, down in that area and have been following it.

BLOCK: It sounds like he had taken paragliding lessons some time ago and his instructor told the Associated Press that the priest was headstrong and anxious. He thought this flight was a tragedy foretold. That would sound like he might have been a terribly good candidate for this kind of sport.

Mr. NINOMIYA: This type of sport is - it's not hard to do, in terms of just rigging up the required amount of balloons to some sort of harness or basket or things like that. But where the skill involved comes in - is just knowing the appropriate conditions to fly in as far as meteorology.

BLOCK: You're saying, it's not hard to do but you wouldn't want just anybody to go out and strap themselves to a bunch of balloons, I think?

Mr. NINOMIYA: That's very true. And the stories that you hear about people just deciding to try this, sort of, out of the blue aren't very good. The one currently in Brazil is probably the worst of them, but it is a dangerous thing to do and the possibility of injury, or potentially death, is definitely there if you don't know what you're doing.

BLOCK: Mm-hmm. Let's explain a little bit how this works. I've been looking at the images of this and the balloons look pretty big. How big are they?

Mr. NINOMIYA: Well, in the case of Fr. de Carli, I understand that he was using more of a very large toy balloon-sized balloon, maybe a couple of foot diameter sort of size range. When I do this myself, I tend to use somewhat larger balloon, 4 to 7 foot in size, more of a weather-balloon-type balloon.

BLOCK: The priest in Brazil apparently had GPS, had a sat phone, also would have had a parachute? Does that sound right?

Mr. NINOMIYA: Yes, that's pretty much equivalent to what I carry. I generally carry a radio so that I can contact my crew on the ground. I also carry an aircraft frequency radio so that if I come near to any controlled air space, I can also talk with the tower at the airport. In terms of the most important for control, is water ballast. You've seen the pictures of the old-time gas balloons that are carrying sand bags as ballasts, I carry a water - 100 pounds of it or so, and what that allows me to so is when I'm descending, having burst balloons to come down, if I need to level out or go back up, I can release some of that water. I become lighter and I go back up.

BLOCK: When you're lifting off with all these balloons above you, what's the sensation? Can you describe it?

Mr. NINOMIYA: Oh, it's a really wonderful thing; I really enjoy it. I remember as a kid seeing the French film, the red balloon in which a little boy at the end of the film floats away under a big bouquet of balloons over the city of Paris. And since I've been a kid, for seeing that, that's something that I've always wanted to do.

BLOCK: It must a rush I would think?

Mr. NINOMIYA: It's - there's nothing like it. It's totally silent and you just see your legs dangling down below. You see everything. It's wonderful.

BLOCK: Well, John Ninomiya, thanks so much for talking with us.

Mr. NINOMIYA: Well, thank you for having me.

BLOCK: John Ninomiya is cluster balloonist in San Diego.

"I did not, I'm sure it's nothing though just like ufo's, bigfoot, life on mars etc, it's all bullshit, we're alone and we suck, period." / my customer

I thought his sentence was hilarious.

It's not the boys fault his name is Falcon and he was listening to Nelly Furtado on his walkman.

On a side note, who the hell names their kid "Falcon." Fuggen tree huggers. :shake:

I bet his siblings are named Emu and Robin.

Okay, Robin may be okay. And actually, now that I think of it, I like Emu.

Well,... as if the name weren't obvious for the past 6 years, it sure has become apparent today. No?

Indeed :doh!:

Someone at work told me that the family was on Wife Swap...is this true?

Man I will feel bad for the family if they get bad news, but this sounds like a huge publicity stunt.

Sh*t. They are now looking for a box that was attached to the balloon when it lifted off, but was not attached when it landed.

The whole balloon coverage is just weird... did people really think there was a kid inside that thing? Did anyone bother to ask the parents about it? Something that might have come up in the course of showing the parents video would be: Holy sh*t, the balloon is missing the basket!

Oh c'mon, get the pictures out of here.

Putting a face to the probable puddle of 6 year old makes it significantly less entertaining.

I liked him better when I had envisioned some claymation kid from a Tim Burton movie.

If that family learned nothing else from the show, it should have been to always helmet your children. :(

So there was a box on the bottom, and it may have fallen off shortly after takeoff... I'm afraid that they might find him inside when they find that

http://blogs.usatoday.com/ondeadline/2009/10/officials-scramble-to-rescue-6yearold-boy-floating-away-in-hot-air-balloon.html

Update at 457 p.m. ET: Officials now say they believe the boy might not have ascended with the balloon and is hiding near his home.

"At this point, we are thinking that he did not fall out of the balloon and is somewhere on the ground," said Larimer County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Eloise Campanella. "The basket itself was not breached. It does not look like he fell out of it, but again, this is all conjecture."

"I'm very confident we will find him. I think it's a matter of him being a little scared," she said. "Maybe he's not ready to be found."

The more time this kid is missing, more i think this is not going to turn out so good. How long can a kid hide w/o getting hungry, bored or lonely.

On a serious note that is gonna suck if they find the box and the kid inside of it. How sad that would be. :(

CNN showing still shot of something looking like a box detached from the balloon...very hard to tell but looks like something that might indicate this won't end well.
