SOUTH AFRICA (REUTERS) - A British man flew over Johannesburg using a chair attached to 100 helium balloons.

Tom Morgan, part of a group called The Adventurists, flew some 15 miles (24 kilometres) for two hours reaching a maximum altitude of 8,300 feet (2,530 metres).

"It was a fairly indescribable feeling, wafting across Africa on a cheap camping chair dangling from a load of balloons," said the 38-year-old Morgan.

After this, the adventure company plans to organize a helium balloon race in Africa.
