Amazing Daredevil rides a cluster of balloons for 100 miles 18,000 feet above Mexico

American daredevil Jonathan Trappe took these stunning images as he flew a cluster of balloon 18,000 feet above Mexico.

The adventurer, who made history by floating over the English Channel dangling from balloons in May, did his latest stunt to celebrate the Mexican bicentennial.

He took off in the craft made up of the Mexican flag colours while at the Festival International Del Globo 2010 earlier this month.
