Greg Winker informed us that his attempt to break the AM-3 distance record has been a great success. He almost doubled the old record of 568,63 km (353,33 miles).
His aim to get the duration record on his name was not successful; he landed after 23 hours of flight, just before sunrise. After takeoff Greg noticed that the valve was not functioning properly. The heat of the sun would have caused an uncontrollable ascent of the balloon.
