GlobalFlyer Attempt Delayed


[Media Source*]

(Space.com)
GlobalFlyer’s pilot, adventurer Steve Fossett, said in a statement: "What a disappointment. As eager as I am to start this flight, everything must be right."

Due to the weather, the flight will not commence. The purpose of the flight was to set the "first solo, non-stop, non-refueled circumnavigation of the world." That is quite an achievement for any flight craft to accomplish.

But at least they figured out a problem before it happened. Although it will be a disappointment to see Steve Fossett not fly as scheduled, I am looking forward towards the flight later on.
Once in the sky, the Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer is capable of speeds of over 285 miles per hour (250 knots). The around-the-world flight should be completed inside 80 hours. The route will begin from the Salina airfield and then follow the jet stream winds across the Atlantic to the United Kingdom.

From there, Fossett will head south-east across the Mediterranean and the Gulf before turning east towards Pakistan, India, China and Japan. The final leg of the journey will take the plane out over the Pacific towards Hawaii before crossing the west coast of the United States and returning to the Kansas launch site.

The next flight is scheduled to take place between March 1st and March 3rd. Will post updates as they arrive. Selah!
