Question Of The Day: What's Up With That?
For some strange reason, a LOT of people made famous flights on July 2nd: Steve Fosset flew solo around the world nonstop in a baloon in 2002, Amelia Earhardt disappeared during her famous flight around the world July 2, 1937. Perhaps less historical but worth noting: a guy a named Larry Walters en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Walters (pictured above) attached 42 helium baloons to a lawn chair 30 years ago today... and rose a reported 16k feet into the air. Is it a coincicence that the U.S. Army Air Corp was ALSO created July 2nd, 1926?? We think not!
We'll do a set of songs about taking flight in today's Question of the Day.
