Photo Comment

This aircraft piloted by Steve Fossett with co-pilot Mark Rebholz succesfully completed a non-stop crossing of the Atlantic on 20 July 2005, re-creating the epic first crossing by Alcock and Brown in June 1919. The flight lasted 18 hrs 15 minutes. It is seen here at the De Havilland Moth Rally where it was a guest.
