Jonathan Trappe, the first man to fly across the English Channel using a cluster of balloons, recently flew a balloon-powered house inspired by computer annimated Pixar movie, Up.
His creation flew above the León International Balloon festival in León, Guanajuato, Mexico.
The 38-year-old Trappe is a professional cluster-balloonist from Raleigh, North Carolina.
National Geographic also built a house based on the Pixar movie UP.
The National Geographic house was powered by a cluster of 300 balloons.
Each of the numerous 8' weather balloons contained an entire container of helium.
Inspired by the computer animated movie Up, a crew from National Geographic Channel's new show How Hard Can it Be? filmed the house reaching an altitude of 10,000 feet.
Somewhere east of Los Angeles the 16' x 16' house remained airborne for an hour.
The illustrations below depict the computer animated movie UP.
Neither of the balloon powered replica houses contained a cantankerous old man, a boy, a talking dog or a giant bird.
