Come Fly With Me

Also from BBCnews, this summary of the rollout of Virgin GlobalFlyer, the aircraft scheduled to make the world's first non-stop, solo, unrefueld, around-the-world flight (whew!) Steve Fosset, the guy who kept trying to go around the world in a baloon but kept not doing it, will be the pilot. Let's hope everything turns out, as an airplane can break down in many more deadly ways than can a baloon.
