The aviator

There was once a man named Steve
Who planned to set out, I believe
Of his own accord
To create a new record
Which, by flying 27k miles, he hopes to achieve!

For the moment though, he’s facing a delay
For some glitches have come into play.
A tail wind that’s bleak
Plus a fuel tank leak
Have both prevented him from taking off today!

Adventurer Steve Fossett has postponed his three-day non-stop flight around the world because of mechanical problems and poor wind conditions. Get the story here & here


Well guess what? To everyone’s delight
He completed the longest non-stop flight
And proved that 61years
Need not stop you my dears
From adventure, so go ahead, you’ve every right!
