Endurance Record

Although this is not a post from any 100MHFC member, I still thought it was an interesting article to post.

The world endurance record for a propeller driven airplane was set between December 4, 1958 and February 7, 1959 – totaling 64 days and 22 hours in the air. Pilots Robert Timm and John Cook took turns piloting the plane and sleeping on a single mattress behind the pilot seat. The plane was refueled from a moving truck on the ground. For safety reasons, the FAI no longer recognizes new records for manned airplane or glider flights.
