A hot air balloon demonstration at an NFL game went absurdly awry

At a 1969 Vikings game:

"It certainly went up, but the problem is it kept going up because the rope connected to it somehow failed,"


Unfortunately, the 11-year-old's troubles were only just beginning. Not only was he flying into the path of the oncoming air traffic at MSP Airport, but he would disappear into the clouds.


"My poor mom and dad wandered out into the field through the deep snow, only to get up to the balloon and I wasn't in it"
