Steve Fossett


Steve holds 110 records in five different sports, 70 of which remain unbroken, he considers his 2005 flight in the GlobalFlyer as one of his most important achievements. Flying around the world solo, non-stop and without refueling, he started and finished this record in Salina, Kan., with assistance from K-State at Salina students. It was a feat of engineering, aviation and sheer human endurance that placed Steve in the record books and in the history books, alongside the likes of Charles Lindbergh.
