I just want to tell everyone ...

Flight time: 62 hrs. 45 min.
Distance: 1,966.1 km 1,221.7 miles
landed: Crete, NE 08:45 CST N 40- 39.165 W 096- 51.950

From Andy, Feb. 5, 2007:

I just want to take this opportunity to tell everyone thanks and what a great time this little gas flight was. We didn't make the distance mark that we had wish for, but far exceeded any goals in adventure ! Total planning time for this flight and putting this outstanding team together was less than 40 days.
To my team and all the people around the world that followed the flight, I hope the time spent with us was time well spent. Many lessons on our equipment in extended freezing temperatures were learn.
Hopefully, flight following in the future will be better. Sam and I are talking about maybe trying to finish the task. We may pick-up where we landed and finish the flight before his end of March deadline. Stay tune and see what we come up with to keep Sam from losing his 10 year old bet.
Best Regards to All,

Andy Cayton
