On May 5, 1945, Reverend Archie Mitchell went to the church with his wife and wife children where he saw a pastor for fishing and picnic in mountains near Bly in Oregon. Mitchel left them near a road so they could easily hike from woods up the mountains. Suddenly they heard the sound of a child, they were talking about balloons. Mitchell’s wife and children ran to see the balloons. They were those people who killed in Second World War by enemy attack.
Archie’s wife and children discovered Japanese Balloon bomb, that day was special for them, these balloons flew nearly 8000 km across the Pacific sea and landed in mountains named Gearheart. It was the great invention because Japanese did not have a heavy bomber before. They did not have B-29 to could compete with other countries. So they saved them from enemies and they launched 9000 fire balloons. In 9000 balloons, 300 reached in the North American continent.
