The goal of the Fedor Konyukhov RTW flight in July 2016 was to beat the record of 13 days flying around the world in a balloon, held by Steve Fossett since 2002. The Round the world flight was completed and Fedor arrived back safely to Western Australia. It was an incredible event for all those involved directly and indirectly.
