Unrefueled Flight Level D. by Harcourt School Publishers and Richard L. Taylor.

The Rutan Model 76 Voyager was the first aircraft to fly around the world without stopping or refueling. It was piloted by Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager. The flight took off from Edwards Air Force Base's 15,000 foot (4,600 m) runway in the Mojave. The flight took off from Edwards Air Force Base's 15,000 foot (4,600 m) runway in the Mojave Desert on December 14, 1986, and ended 9 days, 3 minutes and 44 seconds later on December 23, setting a flight endurance record

In December 1986 two pilots, Dick Rutan (1939-) and Jeana Yeager (1952-), landed an odd-looking aircraft called Voyager in the California desert after making the first nonstop flight around the world without refueling.

In December 1986 two pilots, Dick Rutan (1939-) and Jeana Yeager (1952-), landed an odd-looking aircraft called Voyager in the California desert after making the first nonstop flight around the world without refueling. The 25,012-mile (40,244 km) flight was the last major milestone left in aviation and was the result of six years of work

On Dec. 23, 1986, the experimental airplane Voyager, piloted by Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager, completed the . The Voyager flight came 62 years after the first around-the-world flight, completed by two . Army planes that made 57 stops during their 175-day journey.

On Dec. 23, 1986, the experimental airplane Voyager, piloted by Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager, completed the first nonstop, around-the-world flight without refueling. It landed safely at Edwards Air Force Base in California. The idea for the Voyager came about as Mr. Rutan, his brother Burt and Ms. Yeager ate lunch together one day in 1981; the three sketched the design for the plane on a napkin. At a news conference held after the landing, Mr. Rutan said, This was the last major event of atmospheric flight.

The challenges Burt Rutan faced were daunting. He had to balance the necessary fuel capacity with the need for increased lift to overcome the fuel weight and higher induced drag.

On December fourteenth, Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager walked around the plane one . Dick had flown almost all of the first sixty hours of the flight

On December fourteenth, Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager walked around the plane one more time. It looked like a giant white flying insect. They were going to be trusting their lives to this strange plane for the next nine days. Dick had flown almost all of the first sixty hours of the flight. Then he changed places with Jeana for short periods. Both were extremely tired. Suddenly, a red warning light turned on. It was a signal that there was not enough oil in one engine. Dick and Jeana had been so busy trying to fly around bad weather and mountains that they had forgotten to watch the oil level. But luck stayed with them. They added the necessary oil. The engine was not damaged.

Pilots Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager circumnavigated the globe in 1986 To stand behind and escort you around the world, your big debut.

Pilots Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager circumnavigated the globe in 1986 As Voyager broke through the clouds, Dick and Jeana could see the tens of thousands of people lining the lake bed to welcome them home! Without a newspaper or radio (or time to enjoy either), they had no idea the whole world was watching this fragile airplane circling the globe. After a few appreciation fly bys over the huge crowd, the Voyager successfully landed at 0806 after having made the first ever non stop, unrefueled flight around the world. To stand behind and escort you around the world, your big debut. Your flight now over, your mission past.
