Global Flyer launch still uncertain

Launch date for the Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer’s world-record attempt remains uncertain.

As of press time, the launch date had been set for sometime between Feb. 8 and 11, moved up from Feb. 6 because of weather and “other unfavorable takeoff conditions,” according to officials at the Salina Municipal Airport in Kansas, where Steve Fossett is set to begin the first solo, non-stop, non-refueled around-the-world flight attempt.
