Ford Sends 2015 Mustang 110,000 Feet into the Air (Sorta.)

 |  |  |  |  |  |  May 13, 2014


We have seen plenty of stuff tied to a balloon over the years and set into the atmosphere and the edge of space. Ford has done this recently by attaching a model of the all-new 2015 Mustang to a balloon and setting it free to climb.

The model reached an altitude of 110,000 feet or about 21 miles above the surface of the Earth. The model kit used in the project was made by Revell and the team used a high-altitude weather balloon to send it sky high.

The entire flight lasted 74 minutes and the balloon and model were tracked with a GPS unit for recovery. Watch the video for yourself to see the highlights of the trip.
