The term “flying solo” took on a whole new meaning for young Australian pilot, Lachlan Smart when he began his 54 day venture flying across the world.
Smart, who is only 18, became the youngest person to circumnavigate around the globe in a single engine plane, ending his journey at Queensland’s Maroochydore Airport on Saturday morning after almost two months of travelling, that took the teen to 24 different places and 15 countries. The previous record holder, American Matt Guthmiller, finished the trip aged 19 years, seven months and 15 days.
“That’s how you claim a Guinness World Record!” Lachlan wrote on Instagram after finally touching down on Australian soil.
