Between March and July 1998 Brian Milton and fellow pilot Keith Reynolds flew a single-engined weight-shift microlight - GT Global Flyer - 24,301 miles around the world in 80 days. This is an account of their journey. Their flight retraced, as far as possible, the route taken by Phileas Fogg and his French manservant Passpartout in Jules Verne's classic "Around the World in 80 Days", first published 125 years ago. GT Global Flyer, virtually a large hang glider with a motorbike slung underneath, is the smallest and lightest aircraft ever to attempt such a hazardous journey. Leaving London, they flew through Europe and the Middle East and onward through China, Japan, and into Russia. Crossing the Pacific they reached Alaska and flew through Canada and America before going to Greenland and Iceland and then to Scotland and finally London.
