I’m confused. Steve Fossett just “made history”, according to CNN, by being the person who “completed the first nonstop flight ’round-the-world without refueling”.
When I was in Seattle in February, though, I saw a model hanging from the roof of SeaTac airport of the Voyager aircraft, which, according to Wikipedia, was “the first to fly around the world without stopping or refueling”. In 1986. So which is it…?
