History Flight Recreated

Fri Jun 10, 2005 10:34 pm

Hey Kids,

Hopefully this hasn't been already posted:

Mr. Fosset's at it again. This time he'll fly with Mark Rebholz, a Boeing 747 pilot for United Airlines, across the Atlantic in a copy of the Vickers Vimy flown non-stop from Ireland to Newfoundland by Alcock and Brown in 1919. Navigation will be done the old-fashioned way--with a compass and sextant. Neat, eh?

Let's hope they have better luck than the people who tried to recreate the Wright brothers' famous flight with an exact duplicate on December 17, 2003...

Best of luck to them!!
