Fossett makes history
CNN.com - Fossett makes history - Mar 3, 2005: "Fossett has proved himself to be a modern-day Magellan, the mariner whose expedition circumnavigated the globe in from 1519 to 1521. In 2002, Fossett was the first solo balloonist to circle the globe nonstop, despite an on-board fire and dangerous winds. Two years later, he and his crew made the fastest circumnavigation on a sailing ship: 58 days."
