Troy Bradley and Leonid Tiukhtyaev have flown more than 5,260 miles since lifting off from Saga, Japan.


Two balloonists crossing over the Pacific Ocean from Japan have surpassed a distance record for gas-filled balloon travel and are due to land in Baja California, Mexico, in two days, officials said.

Troy Bradley, an American, and Leonid Tiukhtyaev, a Russian known as the Two Eagles had travelled more than 5,260 miles (8,465 km) by Thursday afternoon, according to a tracking website set up for their journey.

They surpassed the distance record of 5,209 miles (8,383 km) for gas balloons set on the only previous manned trans-Pacific flight, in 1981. The pilots are more than 250 miles west-north-west of San Francisco, California.

Here's the full story

Hot Air Balloon

That's pretty cool don't know if I'd want to be stuck in a hot air balloon for that long.

What do you think of their accomplishment ?
