This is Jonathan Trappe, a 38-year-old from Raleigh, North Carolina. Two years ago, he became the first man to fly across the English Channel by clusters of balloons.
This weekend, he flew above the International Ballon Festival in Leon, Mexico, in a house inspired by the Disney Pixar movie Up. (This kind of stunt has been done before.)
Trappe’s next goal? Flying across the Atlantic.
