A Belgian-British teenager became the youngest person to fly around the world solo in a small aircraft after he landed on Wednesday in Bulgaria, where his global journey kicked off five months ago.
Mack Rutherford, who turned 17 during the trip, landed on an airstrip west of Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia, to complete his task and to claim two Guinness World Records.
Along with becoming the youngest person to fly around the world by himself, Rutherford is the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe in a microlight plane.
His sister, Zara, who finished her own trip global flight in January at age 19, previously held the ultralight record.
Rutherford took the age record from Travis Ludlow of Britain, who was 18 when he made a solo flight around the world last year.
