Outside Magazine

On March 21, 2010, extreme athlete Bill Heaner will attempt to jump from an air balloon, take a spin on his paraglider, and then reenter the same air balloon on the same flight in Casa Grande, Arizona, states wholebodygreen.com. The world record attempt will be the first of its kind as no one has yet accomplished this feat in the history of aviation.
