CUN­NING FLY­ING STUNT

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

You could ar­gue that they should have used an Ariel for this aerial lu­nacy, but the out­fit is ac­tu­ally a Tri­umph 500 Ad­ven­turer. The out­fit was owned by John Hind, and con­verted for this id­iocy by stunt spe­cial­ist Chris Dunk­ley. We’re still sur­prised to this day that the bal­loon could cope with the weight, but it soared to a lofty 600ft abouve the Avon Gorge in Bris­tol, be­fore bring­ing its three pas­sangers safely back to Earth. Jump of the year?
