Vickers Vimy Transatlantic Flight Recreated

I did a search and couldn't find this topic already posted....

Steve Fossett is back to his old tricks.
This time he's recreated the transatlantic Vickers Vimy flight in a replica:

His co-pilot was a UA 744 captain.
Pretty impressive considering this plane was designed as a WWI bomber.
