      David,
      Actually he was the 1st SOLO balloonist that made it around the world non-stop. 
      The 1st balloonists that made it around the world were Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones
      beginning March 1, 1999 and ended 20 days later in the Breitling Orbiter 3. 


      Thanks for the info Bill.  I wish them luck!
