The new autobiography of Bozo The Clown, "The Man Behind The Nose" by Larry 'Bozo' Harmon (Harper Collins, 2010) contains his account of participating in weightless training at Wright-Patterson AFB in 1969.

Harmon undertook a project to produce an educational film about weightlessness in spaceflight, and he flew in full Bozo regalia aboard the Air Force's C-135 weightless training plane. He wrote that young children didn't understand that aspect of space travel, 'but they understand Bozo, the world's most famous clown.'

The Air Force readily agreed to facilitate his project. The book has several photos from his weightless flight. Does anyone remember seeing this film? Is it available anywhere in cyberspace, perhaps on YouTube?

I am sure he would be proud of Guy Laliberté.
