ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A British man flew over Johannesburg using a chair attached to 100 helium balloons on Friday. Tom Morgan, part of a group called The Adventurists, flew some 15 miles (24 kilometers) for two hours reaching a maximum altitude of 8,300 feet (2530 meters). "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.
