Fedor Konyukhov Sets New World Record

Fedor KonyukhovWe previously wrote about Russian Adventurist Fedor Konyukhov roughly two weeks ago when he first launched his around-the-world attempt. If you have been following his adventure, you may have seen he not only broke the world record for a solo balloonist traversing the globe, but he broken Steve Fossett’s original record of 13 days by over 51 hours!

Total Time in the Air: 11 days 5 hours 11 minutes or 269 hours 11 minutes

Total Distance: 34,977.36 km or about 21734 miles

His Morton balloon is set to appear in a newly built museum in Moscow.

Congratulations, Konyukhov!
