Teen pilot aims for round-the-world record
from CBC News
An Australian teenager hoping to earn a place in the aviation record books stopped in Newfoundland and Labrador, midway through his mission to fly solo around the world. Ryan Campbell, 19, set out from Australia on June 30, just a day after 21-year-old Californian Jack Wiegand became the youngest person to fly solo around the world. "It's a crazy, out-there dream that I didn't think was achievable and for a whole number of reasons," Campbell told CBC News on the airstrip at Happy Valley-Goose Bay, where he stopped for a layover.
