Подпись:helicopters in round-the-world record – breaking flights. The first three flights were made in Bell Model 206s – two JetRangers and a 206L LongRangcr – and each set a new record. Perhaps the most remarkable was that of Dick Smith, whose 56,740-km (35,257-mile) flight was a solo effort. Ross Perot Jr, who set the first record, had a C-130 for navigation, communications and logistic support, while Ron Bower had GPS navigation to help him beat Perot’s record.
