You probably don’t remember what you were doing on July 10. Well, eight-year-old JT Head was breaking the world record for being the youngest person to pilot a hot air balloon. The fourth-grader from Georgia piloted the balloon solo for 20 minutes, which was just long enough to break the world record.
JT flew 400 feet over the Sautee Valley in Georgia completely by himself. If anyone was in a good position to break the record, it was probably him, as his father owns a hot-air balloon company.
