Documenting Aviation History
"In early 2005, adventurer Steve Fossett will take Global Flyer into the stratosphere and attempt to fly solo around the world on a single tank of gas. Virgin Atlantic CEO Richard Branson, who is sponsoring the upcoming mission, believes this flight will become the next great aviation record — an achievement comparable to Lindbergh’s 1927 trans-Atlantic flight. But it won’t be easy: Lindbergh started hallucinating after staying awake for 30 hours straight. Fossett will be aloft for 80 — not to mention his one-tank-of-gas limit restricting him from landing and refueling."
