Victorre Margaiaz (R) and Marion Perrey celebrate after the Solar Impulse 2 airplane, piloted by Andre Borschberg, lands at Kalaeloa Airport in Kapolei, Hawaii, after flying non-stop from Nagoya, Japan, July 3, 2015. The Solar Impulse, which took off from Japan on Monday on the seventh leg of its journey and landed in Hawaii early on Friday, shattered the solo-flight record threshold of 76 hours whilst crossing the Pacific. The solo record was previously set in 2006 by American adventurer Steve Fossett, who flew the Virgin Atlantic Global Flyer for 76 hours non-stop. REUTERS/Hugh Gentry

Adventurer Steve Fossett (R) and wife Peggy are pictured at the Kent International Airport in southern England after Fossett made the longest non-stop flight in aviation history, in this February 11, 2006 file photograph. According to the California Department of Justice Forensics lab November 3, 2008, genetic tests on two bones found near the wreckage of Fossett's plane contained Fossett's DNA. Early October 2008, local authorities discovered the wreckage of the aircraft after a hiker not far from Yosemite National Park found identification cards belonging to Fossett, prompting a search that uncovered the crash site.
