The London Times on Sunday, Aug. 5, has an article on David Hempleman-Adams who plans to become the first soloist to balloon across the top of Everest.

A hot air balloon went over Everst in 1991 with Leo Dickinson and Andy Elson in 1991.

This two-hour trip could be harder as it starts on the plains of China and ends in the mountains of Nepal. Winds are expected to be about 100 mph and temperatures at -50 degrees.
