balloon boy from wife swap

The boy who was thought to be stuck in a high-flying hot air balloon was featured with his family on the show "Wife Swap."

6-year-old Falcon Heene was believed to be trapped in the homemade contraption, flying high above Colorado. Falcon, his mother Mayumi, father Richard, and brothers Bradford and Ryo were on the show last year.

Richard is a storm chaser, an inventor and has been called a "mad scientist."

ABC's website describes the family this way: "When the Heene family aren't chasing storms, they devote their time to scientific experiments that include looking for extraterrestrials and building a research-gathering flying saucer to send into the eye of the storm. In this ultimate swap, the Heenes swap lives with a psychic mom who speaks to the dead and can control the weather, her husband and her children -- who believe they are destined to be stars. This show will feature aliens, punk rockers, past-life regression and, for the first time ever, the children from the two families will face off in a kids' table meeting. 'Heene/Silver,' the 100th episode of 'Wife Swap,' destined to become a classic!"
