Smooth: Hot Air Balloon Pilot Hits Power Line, Emergency Lands In Lake

June 26, 2018

hot-air-balloon-vs-power-line.jpg

Note: Keep your volume down, power line explosion at 0:45 is intense.

This is a video of a hot air ballooner who nails a power line, then makes an emergency landing in a nearby lake while his buddy yells for everybody to get back. The lake landing looked like it was performed by a real expert, but that power line hit -- that looked like amateur hour. Thankfully, the balloon's pilot was completely unharmed in the incident, clearly because he opted for Jesus as his copilot on this trip. Sill, it's a shame Jesus won't ride with me anymore on account of always "Jesus, take the wheel"-ing him while I try to pee in a Gatorade bottle.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Collin F, who agrees I need to work some hot air balloon tricks into this year's neighborhood stunt spectacular.

    That is pretty terrifying, especially when he started to float up AFTER hitting the wire.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Guarantee that guy's ears are gonna be ringing for weeks afterward.
