MackSolo Team Update ✈️ 🌍:
Who doesn’t dream of a bit of red carpet action 🤪?
That’s exactly what happened to Mack Rutherford 👨✈️. Only 17, and as Youngest Guinness World Record holder for #flying solo around the world, he received the "Baron Hilton Inspiration of Aviation" 🏆 award at the 20th “Living Legends of Aviation". The Beverly Hills event was presented by John Travolta🕺 (!), a keen #aviator himself!
How humbling to be standing in the iconic Beverly Hilton hotel’s International Ballroom where #GoldenGlobes have recently been awarded and meet Aviation Legends, Inductees, and other Honorees such as:
• Clay Lacy (record-setter and #aviation icon)
• Musician and producer Kenny G 🎷
• Astronaut 👨🚀 Buzz Aldrin (1st Moon landing anyone?) who that day on his 93rd birthday, married his long-standing sweet-heart
• Actor William Shatner ("Captain Kirk", commander of the USS Enterprise 🚀 in "Star Trek", but also #pilot and the oldest person to reach space when flying into space with Blue Origin on the "New Shepard"),
• Polar expedition and arctic circle aviator Shane Lundgren
• Triple #guinnessworldrecord holder Haemisch Harding (up in the air and below in the sea)
• Record holder Alan Eustace (highest skydive from the stratosphere with 135 899 feet)
• And so many more…
It looks like flying has been more than one person's dream 💫!
Thank you for this accolade. Nothing is more valuable than recognition by other pilots.
