Boyless Balloon Take-Off Vid -- Hoax?

10/16/2009 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Heene family has released video of their flying saucer "accidentally" taking flight -- before they allegedly thought six-year-old was inside.



Papa Richard Heene can be seen releasing the balloon and then screaming at his wife for not holding onto the tether. One of their other sons is working the camera. Falcon is MIA, presumably already in a box in the attic.

So ... real deal, or Part 1 of an elaborate set-up?
