VOYAGER - Leaving The California Coast On World Flight

In this photograph we see the Voyager aircraft leaving the California coastline on it's around the world flight, non-stop, one tank of gas, on December 14th, 1986.

The missing winglets were forced off in flight, after the Voyager's heavily fuel-ladened wings scraped along the runway during the longest takeoff in Edwards Air Force Base history - two minutes and fourteen seconds.

Signed by pilots Jeana Yeager, Dick Rutan, and designer Burt Rutan, its hard to believe this historic event took place over 20 years ago. (Locations of signatures may vary from image shown.)

The Voyager returned to California December 23, 1986, after 9 days, 3 minutes and 44 seconds.

Also on the back are printed overall dimensions, cabin and cockpit dimensions and weights.
