The Flying Priest

Brazilian priest Adelir Antonio de Capri tried to break the record of 19 hours set for time spent flying by balloon. After he initially went missing, his remains were found at sea, about over 650 miles northeast. Sadly, de Capri had begun his journey as an attempt to raise money for charity. Even sadder, he had a GPS system with him, but didn’t attempt to figure out how it worked until he was airborne.
