Larry Walters' ("Lawnchair Larry")  was an American truck driver who took flight on July 2, 1982, in a homemade airship. Dubbed Inspiration I, the "flying machine" consisted of an ordinary patio chair with 45 helium-filled weather balloons attached to it. Walters rose to an altitude of over 15,000 feet (4,600 m) and floated from his point of origin in San Pedro, California, into controlled airspace near Los Angeles International Airport. His flight was later replicated and confirmed true in one of the Mythbusters first episodes.


Any object or person that is put on the chair has their weight drastically decreased, making them float like a balloon. It can only be reversed when the user decides they've had enough and want to come down. Once they touch ground, the effects dissipates.


  • When Walters was descending, he crashed into some power lines. This event lingers, as those gliding in the air have an attraction when they come near power lines. This is uncontrollable, and agents are warned to be careful if they ever use this artifact outdoors.
