Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager completed the first nonstop, non-refueled flight around the world in their Voyager aircraft on December 23, 1986. They lifted off from Edwards Air Force Base in California on December 14, and returned nine days later, after following a route determined by weather, wind, politics, and geography.
