Anyone heard of/using SKY LANTERNS?

But.... you cannot pack these on a plane, especially if you have alot of them... they are flammable.
Just something to think about. Australia put a temporary ban on the use, supply and sale of sky lanterns for 18 months a week ago. Due to fires and the lanterns being so hazardous. A whole country is using the next 18 months to decide if these are so hazardous that they need a permanent ban.
Just a small side note there. Plus I have to agree, wind on the beach, and drunk people, you need 2 to light one and you can't have wrinkled corners, etc is just maybe too much for wedding where drinking is involved.
I think these may be better for a funeral. To light for someone who has passed and you're not drinking. Just saying....

I was told that it can go in with my checked luggage and they are 16"x16" so it should fit fine. I was also told that there shouldnt be a problem with the fuel cells.

We set a few off but it was too windy so we brought them home and are going to release the rest this summer as we live on a lake.
I have 7 left if anyone would like them, $15 plus shipping.
