Spanish pilot Michel Gordillo has completed his amazing figure-of-eight flight around the world via both Poles.
Called the Sky Polaris project, Michel landed at Madrid Airport last week after flying 76,400 kilometres (41,253nm) in the two-seat Van’s RV-8 built by himself and his daughters.
Almost half the flight (32,183km) was over open water. One leg, across Antarctica, was 4,783km. Michel spent 305 tacho hours flying the aircraft.
