4 Year Old Balloon Boy! 1932. Billy Crawford helps to inflate his huge balloon. He then gets into a little sling-seat hanging below the balloon and Billy takes off into the air! The balloon is tethered, so after rising up it comes back down to earth but still it does fly quite high!

It turns out Billy was the youngest ever Balloonist. We think he is still alive as he was interviewed in 2009 at aged 82:
