GlobalFlyer Attempting Third World Record

Global Flyer in Google EarthSteve Fossett launched from Salina, Kansas, for the third major record attempt in the GlobalFlyer yesterday morning. This time Steve is attempting to set the closed circuit distance record around the world. Someone forwarded me a new network link for watching Global Flyer’s track as it makes the attempt in real-time. It includes a GlobalFlyer icon, which currently shows him flying over Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

This network link is being provided by Blue Sky Networks, a sponsor for GlobalFlyer. The network link was developed by Metal Toad Media.
