A U.S. balloonist who was trying to cross the Atlantic Ocean using hundreds of helium-filled balloons has landed short of his goal in Newfoundland. “This doesn’t look like France,” he posted on Facebook.
Jonathan Trappe reported that he was having trouble controlling his balloons before landing Thursday evening, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He touched down safely and required no medical attention. (Photo: AP Photo / Mark McBreairty)
