- Cell phones disrupt airplane navigation: mythbusted. Modern planes are well-shielded enough to not be affected
- Flying helium raft: mythbusted. The raft would be much too large and flimsy
Adam, Jamie and Kari built a gigantic raft filled with helium to see if they could make Adam fly. Things didn't turn out as well as they would have liked, but any episode that starts with Adam hanging upside down in a net, looking like he got caught in a trap from Lost, was plenty of entertainment even if the busting wasn't done as well as it could have been.
Grant, Tory, and Kari handled the construction of a mock cockpit to see if cell phones could disrupt the navigational equipment. They eventually upgraded to a Hawker 800XP corporate jet, which they were unable to cause any interference with. Their busting showed that interference was possible, but only if the wiring wasn't properly shielded.
