Rubber band ball falls flat

2,600lb of wound elastic fails to bounce for TV cameras THE world's biggest rubber band ball has been dropped from an aeroplane a mile up to see if it would bounce when it landed - but things didn't go exactly according to plan. The ball, which weighed an incredible 2,600lb, was sent plunging to earth for a television show.

Experts thought the ball would bounce hundreds of feet into the air.

Instead, it created a massive crater when it crashed into the sun-baked earth of the Mojave Desert in Arizona at 400mph.
