Pilot Steve Fossett lands the GlobalFlyer in Salina. 
Sir Richard Branson (R) watches with Peggy Fossett as her husband, pilot Steve Fossett, comes in for a landing at the Salina Municipal Airport in Kansas to complete his historic flight, March 3, 2005. His single-engine jet-powered experimental plane touched at 2:48 p.m. EST (19:48 GMT) in a smooth landing about 67 hours after he left the same strip on Monday night, February 28. Fossett, 60, the first to make a solo balloon trip around the world nonstop, has claimed a number of air, land and sea records. At one point a landing in Japan was under consideration but the ground team decided to risk a Pacific crossing at least to Hawaii. Fossett made it there with no problems and thanks to a continuing tail wind crossed the California coast earlier in the day and onto Kansas under power. REUTERS/Dave Kaup DK/GN
