Bend’s "Balloon Man," Kent Couch  and a daredevil from Iraq  say they plan to attempt a new world record for the Longest 2-Man Cluster Balloon Flight” next month in the skies over the northwest.  They made the announcement yesterday.  Their flight is planned to begin in Bend on the morning of Saturday, July 14th and, if all goes well, won't end until the following day.  Flight preparations will begin around 7 a.m. and the public is welcome to come watch them take off. The flight is scheduled to go overnight, landing somewhere in southern Montana.  Couch says: “If the winds are strong and endurance is up, we could end up in Fargo, North Dakota, but that is unlikely.”  Couch's flight in 2008 set the world record for the “Longest Cluster Balloon Flight” at 235 miles.
