I had the local radio on and they were plugged into the ATC feed...sounded like a zoo in the airspace.

Congrats all around to the Global Flyer Team!

I watched Fossett hop out and run around. Amazing. I couldn't do that. I drove a car for 26 hours and 15 minutes once and I was a wreck.

Ouch, I must have missed this Global Flyer thing. Can anyone fill me in? Someone flew around the globe without landing and refueling, I suppose? Helluva feat! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Yup nice flight - a bit too much drama for my taste though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif probably to get more attention if you ask me. How many of you would fly on if you're over Hawaii and come to the conclusion you don't have enough fuel to make it... I didn't believe a word of that nonsence (still don't).

Another record for Fossett though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

And for Burt Rutan - the best plane designer alive IMHO...

Speed! I stayed awake for about 48 hours on the stuff once. It was incredibly unplesant. It doesn't really keep you awake - it just made me twitch so I couldn't fall asleep.

Such a miss-spent youth.
