Steve's start/stop point

We had one inquiry regarding the point that Steve's attempt actually began. Steve worked out a waypoint with the FAI (Fédération Aéronautique Internationale) that serves as his start and stop point for the flight. This waypoint, created specifically for the attempt, and named WLDCT in honor of K-State, is several miles South of the airport. Therefore, Steve does not need to takeoff and land from the same runway at Salina Municipal Airport in order to complete the record.
