"We're probably going to need the cameras, to recover the cameras to really figure out what altitude our plane and balloon separated," Zane Mitchell said. Mitchell is USI's Engineering Department Chairman.
The team say they did have a successful launch, but the cameras cut out before they could determine its maximum altitude. They were only able to recover the nose of the plane with the tracking device which landed in a field just south of Owensville.
They say they'll try for the record again in the spring.
