Real Life Up House

Flying house from Pixar’s animated movie “Up” was recreated in real life.

Team of engineers constructed basic structure of a house and used 300 balloons to make it fly. The entire experimental aircraft was more than 10 stories high, reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet, and flew for approximately one hour. The project was commissioned by the National Geographic Channel for the “How Hard Can It Be?” TV show.

There were two pilots on board; if you look at the Nat Geo press photos, you can see one in the window waving at launch, well above the ground!
