Yeah, it's a 50 caliber. They used to use it to hunt buffalo with... up close! It's only legal in two states. And this isn't one of them.

It landed. Don't know if the boy was still in it or he fell out.

No kid inside. :(

Hopefully he just ran after the balloon when it came untethered. Didn't seem like there were any openings that he would have fallen out of.

The balloon was empty. So the question now is, did the boy not get in the balloon, or did he fall out at one point?

LARIMER COUNTY - A homemade, experimental aircraft made an apparent soft landing about five miles south of Denver International Airport on Thursday afternoon after it took off from a home with a 6-year-old boy inside.

When it landed five miles east of Prospect Reservoir, 9NEWS could not see any child rescued from the basket of the balloon, but earlier police had said they were certain he was still inside. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">The experimental aircraft, which is a type of balloon filled with helium, was up for nearly three hours and appeared to start to rapidly deflate shortly after 1 p.m. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">9NEWS will continue to follow this story and provide updates on 9NEWS.com and 9NEWS at 4, 5 and 6 p.m.

Experts we talked to do not think the speck is a bird or something on the camera lensPosted Image. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">The homemade aircraft made an apparent soft landing northeast of Denver International Airport on Thursday afternoon, but rescue crews found no sign of the boy when they reached the aircraft. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">When it landed five miles east of Prospect Reservoir, 9NEWS could not see any child rescued from the basket of the balloon, but earlier Fort Collins Police had said they were certain he was still inside. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">Police believe the boy, Falcon Heene, was inside the box when the aircraft lifted off around 11 a.m. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">Police say there are pegs on the bottom of the aircraft that indicate that a box was attached at some point. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">The experimental aircraft, which is a type of balloon filled with helium, was up for nearly three hours and appeared to start to rapidly deflate shortly after 1 p.m. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">According to the Larimer County Sheriff's Department, the 6-year-old boy's parents had been building an experimental aircraft which had a large helium balloon attached to it at their home on Fossil Ridge Road in Fort Collins. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">On Thursday morning, according to the family and officials, the boy got onto the aircraft and detached the rope holding it in place. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">The aircraft was a dome-shaped, 20 foot, 5 foot aircraft covered with foil. As it was flying, it was going about 20-25 mph. <BR itxtvisited="1"><BR itxtvisited="1">A spokesperson with Fort Collins Police said, "This balloon was never meant to actually carry anybody.

Good ending:

A 6-year-old boy who was believed to be in an experimental aircraft has been found alive and is at his home.

"He's at the house and he's fine," said Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden, shortly after 4 p.m. He was hiding in a carcboard box in the attic above the garage. Posted Image

I can't believe no one has said this yet...

Who the fuck names their kid Falcon??

Its hilarious to me that white people name their kids after trees, birds, nature type things, goofy shit and nigger give their kids african names or fucking made up names.

Very weird.

When I was a kid a family lived down the street from me, 5 kids to hippy parents. Their names?

Birch, Oak, Pine, Evergreen and the girl was Sky.

haha...we were thinking the same shit...to be fair..the wife is asian...sounds like fucking Yoko Ono. from the interview on Larry King Live last night, sounds more and more like this shit was a hoax for "the show"...the 6year old spilled the beans and the dad tried to cover it up by acting offended at the idea from the MSM... (speaking of spilling the beans...the radio this morning said that they were on Good Morning America, or some show, this morning and the little boy actually DID spill the beans...live on national TV...*barf*)...

Anyway - this family is kooky...."we're children of aliens" and shit...and they're reality tv whore's too....

on the names...when i was growing up, i knew these girls who had hippy parents...their names?

Parents had to be sCUm grads.

Next time I hope the kid actually gets in the balloon, it would make for great target practice.
