A Bend man's plan to fly in his lawn chair with balloons over Baghdad this week is being delayed. Balloonists Kent Couch still plans to fly over Iraq at a record height and distance, but is postponing his trip until March to accommodate more sponsors.  There is apparently a lot of interest in the trip. Couch will be flying in his familiar lawn chair with dare devil Fareed Lafta. The pair will have to endure sub freezing temperatures, breathe through oxygen masks and fly in darkness for many hours.
