Weather holds up balloon flight

CAPE TOWN - A pilot's dramatic attempt to fly from Robben Island to Cape Town with helium balloons is going ahead. 

Fog is lingering over the Mother City, and there's not enough wind to carry him from the island to his planned destination of Bloubergstrand.

But Matt Silver-Valance is still determined to take off today, in a courageous charity run.

Silver-Valance plans to fly using only 200 party balloons, filled with helium.

He's aiming to raise 10-million rand for the Nelson Mandela Children's Hospital.
