Fossett Succeeds!

Another aviation record was broken yesterday as Steve Fossett completed his round the world journey without stopping or refueling in a single engine aircraft, a jet at that. While some have publicly criticized Fossett for his accomplishment, stating that it wasn't his money or his design that made the record happen, he still manned the airplane. Accomplished or famous pilot or not, he still flew the thing despite navigation gear failure and potential fuel issues. Whatever your view of it, he still completed the flight.
