In 2009, Pixar produced the Walt Disney distributed computer animated film Up. The movie was a huge success grossing over $731 million worldwide, and who could forget the awesome balloon flying house in the movie?
The National Geographic Channel was looking to take the imagination from the film and transform it into a real life flying house. Utilizing balloons just like the house in the movie. National Geographic partnered with two world class balloon pilots, engineers, and scientists to create the largest balloon cluster flight in the world. A 16 foot by 16 foot house hovered at over 10,000 feet in the air above Los Angeles for about an hour creating an incredible air show for bystanders.
