(2)Steve Fossett and the Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer completed their 23,000-mile journey, successfully landing back at the starting point in Salina, Kansas on Thursday afternoon. Initially, the mission seemed in jeopardy when the team detected a fuel loss of 2,600 lbs during the first few hours of the flight. Fossett continued to press ahead, however, and if his record is confirmed, he will become the first person to fly a non-stop, solo flight around the world without refueling.
