Ever wonder what the record for the longest flight is? If you have, I’m sure you didn’t imagine that it was accomplished in a Cessna 172. Well folks, it was! This amazing feat was pulled off in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the plane is on static display at McCarran International Airport.

The flight lasted for over 64 days non-stop, establishing the endurance record which still stands today. Take a look at the article for yourself:

A sight that is still incredible even after 36 years. Today is the anniversary of the simultaneous dual landing of Air France & British Airways Concorde aircraft at MCO. The historic event commemorated the opening of the France and United Kingdom Pavilions in the World Showcase at Epcot Center.
