This is the actual aircraft which holds the World Endurance Flying Record. Set on 07-Feb-1959, Robert Timm & John Cook took off from McCarran airport, determined to fly for longer without touching the ground than anyone else. Sponsored by Las Vegas' Hacienda Hotel they flew for 64 days, 22 hours, 19 minutes and 5 seconds - the equivalent of six times around the world. They periodically refuelled from a truck driven along the freeway underneath them, filling the unusual external fuel tank.
