No Launch Before February 19th
Steve Fossett will have to wait a little longer.
The wind borne adventurer who has his eyes set on flying around
the world solo, non-stop and non-refueled says he still doesn't
have the right winds for his attempt. So the Virgin Atlantic Global
Flyer will remain grounded until at least February 19th.
As ANN has reported, the problems lie high above the Earth, in
the jet stream. At first, the stream was too far north for the
distance record Fossett wants to set. Now, it appears the ride is
just too bumpy.
The web site says that turbulence should ease up again --
sometime around February 19th.
