David Niven Would Be Proud

From the Orlando Sentinel

Pilots Carol Ann Garratt of Ocala and Carol Foy of Texas shattered an around-the-world speed record that had stood for 20 years. They also raised $145,000 for research on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's disease. ... "That mission is accomplished," said Garratt, who spent 18 months planning and $15,000 of her own money on the trip so donations could go to ALS research. "But the ALS mission is ongoing until we find a cure for that disease." ... A flight log and more details on the trip can be found at

Here's a pic of PALS David Niven in his "Around The World In 80 Days" days. That champagne sure beats Ensure.
