Bal­loonatic

Pilot - - PILOT NOTES -

A Cana­dian who rode in a deck chair sus­pended from 100 large he­lium bal­loons into the ap­proaches of Calgary In­ter­na­tional Air­port, Daniel Bo­ria was fined a to­tal of CDN$26,500 when he ap­peared in court re­cently. “The stunt was un­con­scionably stupid,” Judge Bruce Fraser told him. “There was noth­ing fan­tas­tic, fun or ex­hil­a­rat­ing about it. It was dumb and dan­ger­ous.” Bo­ria was un­re­pen­tant, de­scrib­ing his es­capade as “the great­est story to tell for the rest of my life”.
