Washington, Sep 16: A balloonist, who was trying to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a small boat suspended below 300 helium-filled balloons, had to cut short his voyage after he was forced to land in a remote area on Newfoundland's west coast.
Jonathan Trappe, who wanted to be named the first person to across the Atlantic with only the aid of balloons, had started from Maine on Thursday, MSN News reported.
Trappe's support team said he ran into technical trouble during the flight and was forced to land his craft.
Trappe had landed in a remote area south of the small Bay of Islands community of Lark Harbour.
His team said that they are making arrangements to get him out of the area.
Trappe has made a name as an adventurer using clusters of balloons, including flying in a house, much as in the Disney-Pixar animated film 'Up'. (ANI)
