A young Australian taking on the world.
« on: June 29, 2013, 09:50:54 PM »
   This is a link to a 19 year old Australian setting out on a round the world flight. He took off approximately 4 hours ago from Woolongong airfield to his first stop at Norfolk Island, the first of scheduled 27 or so stops during his record attempt.
    Good luck Ryan.

what a cool adventure.  my first thought was that it must scare the tar out of his parents, but then i remembered that i was in the military by then and my son and brother were in at 17  :-D.

it's a good time to have adventures before we get to old and cautious!
