Steve Fosset landed at Bournemouth Airport to complete his record breaking flight. If you're in the area go on down and take a look tomorrow.

Must've been a hairy landing, required as a result of an electrical failure, ending with 2 burst tyres.

Good one Steve.

"Fossett burst two tyres when he landed his specially designed GlobalFlyer plane at Bournemouth airport on battery power. The on-board generator had failed over Ireland just after he broke the record."

"Its windshield was so heavily iced Fossett that he could barely see a few meters when he landed, his team said."
