They Walked Between Two Hot Air Balloons And Nothing Can Be More Amazing Than This!

Being on a hot air balloon is an incredible experience rolled in an adventure, but how about walking on a rope attached to two hot air balloons on a pretty decent height?

Tancrède Melet and his partner Julien Millot, members of a stunt team called the Flying Frenchies, made plans to give this ‘walk’ a try on a tightrope in Saint Hilaire du Touvet, France. The idea struck them a year ago, and they’ve been training themselves for this dangerous stunt since then. Pierre Chauffour, a photographer clicked wonderful snaps of the stomach-churning stunt.

The two balloons were haltered to the ground since the balloons were at the risk of drifting apart, putting the stunt in jeopardy.

The hearts of the spectators of the tightrope walk skipped a beat at the moment when Tancrède fell from the wire, only to catch it at the last minute.

Photographer Pierre said: "The entire project was very hard and they needed a lot of time before to plan it. To make sure that the hot air balloons didn't get too far away, they were attached to the ground."

Pierre continues, "But because of the weather, the stunt was delayed – the guys were supposed to have done it on Saturday evening, but the wind was too strong. On Sunday when they did manage to complete the walk, it was just before nightfall. The wind made it hard for them.

Julien didn't get enough time to cross the line as the wind became much too strong.
