|Jack Wiegand world rounder|
Jack Wiegand completed the trip of a lifetime in just 58 days. He planned to set a Guinness World Record as the youngest person to fly solo around the world. He was in Iqaluit for a few days between May 6 and 10, 2013. His stop here was a bit longer than expected, due to some bad luck with a forgotten passport. But with that behind him, he set off to see the world and complete his mission. You can check out Jack's trip on his website, his Facebook page, or his daily Blog.
He was flying a 2006 Mooney Ovation2 GX N432BG. And he used the trip to raise funds for a couple of his favourite charities. You'll find more about that on his webpage, along with a complete live track of his round the world flight.
The photo shows Jack in his immersion suit in front of Frobisher Bay Touchdown Services here at CYFB, Iqaluit, Nunavut, just before he headed off to Greenland for the next leg of his trip on May 10th. Clck on the photo to enlarge.
