Non-stop flight around the world

Breitling-Orbiter 3
On March 21st 1999, two men landed an enormous flying object
in south-western Egypt. In doing so, they accomplished
what had never yet been done: a complete non-stop,
round-the-world balloon flight.

Breitling Orbiter 3 is now on display at the
Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.
