Larry Walters, better known as “Lawnchair Larry”, was a man who gained attention in 1982 when he piloted a homemade aircraft built around a chair to 15,000 feet in California airspace. His aircraft was named Inspiration I and used forty-five helium weather balloons. He initially wanted to fly only a few feet above the ground in his backyard and had with him a pellet gun to shoot out the balloons when he wanted to descend.

Walters’ feat has been duplicated as well as being the subject of an episode of the television show MythBusters.
