  • Myth- In 1882 Larry Walters tied 16 weather balloons to a lawn chair and flew over LAX and landed using a controlled descent by means of a BB gun.
  • Verdict- Confirmed, Dangerous, and Illegal
  • Notes- not only is this myth confirmed it is illegal. Larry Walters was a real person his friends and neighbors were interviewed during the show. The MythBusters got information for the math straight from the FAA themselves who warned them that they need to stay on the ground. During the experiment Adam was Tethered to the chair in order to prevent being fined by the FAA who were monitoring the experiment. For those of you who think you can do Larry's Lawn Chair don't Larry's Lawn Chair is illegal you will get a $5,000 fine and 15 years in jail.
