The above links to a PDF of the full story as reported in the Prior Lake American. By way of background, my friend Gary Schettl built an amazing Glasair homebuilt aircraft. He outfitted it with additional fuel capacity giving it amazing range. I started suggesting he should go for some world records with that much range back when it was still under construction in his garage. So in May of 2006 we did just that! It as a lot of fun!
