Boy's balloon flies 300 miles

LONDON, ENGLAND--(FOX 46)--A boy who tied a note to a balloon and launched it into the sky is finally getting his long awaited response.

Five-year-old Archie Brookman released a balloon from London on July 27. He included a note that asked the recipient to post a picture to the balloon online.

That recipient, Marijke Vikenburg, found the balloon in Holland, some 300 miles from London.

"Dear Archie , we've found your balloon in Oudewater, The Netherlands," Marijke posted on Facebook.
