Around the world in 66 hours (or so)

Virgin Globalflyer has just landed. An impressive feat for all at Burt Rutan's Scaled Composites.



One jet engine around the world.

One final thought: surely Virgin Atlantic have "four engines for long haul" as one of their slogans? Does this mean that they'll need to repaint all their jets?

A great achievement (although I'm not a fan of Richard Branson),

Of course, one can't help wondering how many (if any) flight records might be left to fall....
