Do You Want To Break This Record In Real Life or on FSX?

Recommended Posts

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

 

Here is the photo of the plane flying NON STOP for 64 days, 22 hours, 19 minutes, and 5 seconds. That is how long the Cessna 172 flew without landing from December 1958 to February 1959. The two pilots refueled from a truck and slept in shifts on a single mattress.

 

Do any of you want to break this record in real life or on FSX?

A testament to the durability of the Continental engine if there ever was one.

@Emanuel Hagen and @Mathijs Kok

 

Ha ha  I agree with both of you

 

 Anyway, this non stop 64 day event actually happened. The plane is now in museum in airport  as seen on this link:  https://news3lv.com/features/video-vault/video-vault-plane-in-record-breaking-flight-remains-at-mccarran-as-a-piece-of-history
