Lawn Chair Pilot StoryClick image to read

‘The most stupid and dangerous flight in history!’ says the Federal Aviation Authority. They fine Larry $1,500.

But the American
public loves Larry's story. He goes on national television shows like The David Letterman Show to talk about his adventure.

Later Larry says "It was something I had to do. I had this dream for twenty years". He has only one
regret. ‘The view was amazing,’ he says later. ‘But I forgot to take any photos.’

Sadly, Larry
ended his own life in 1993.
