Cross-posted from Plane Talk

Mack Rutherford, who turned 17 while flying around the world, stopped at King County International Airport (KCIA) in early August on his way to breaking the record of the youngest person to fly solo around the world. Mack was greeted by David Decoteau, KCIA Deputy Director.

Mack’s sister, Zara, also stopped at KCIA on her record-setting journey last year, when she was 19.

Mack has now claimed two Guinness World Records, according to the Associated Press. Along with becoming the youngest person to fly around the world by himself, he is the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe in a microlight plane.
