FIRST MAN TO CROSS ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC OCEAN BY BALOON

BRANSON

Did you know?

Richard Branson is the first person to cross both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans by balloon.

Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson is best known as the founder of Virgin Group which comprises of more than 400 companies.

He attempted to become the first balloonist to circle the globe four times. His last attempt to circumnavigate the world failed when bad weather forced him and his team to ditch their balloon in the Pacific Ocean.

Branson may have gotten his aviation gene from his mother, who was a glider pilot before she married his father.
