One More Orbit
On July 9-11 2019, One More Orbit, broke the Round-the-World record for any aircraft flying over the North and South poles.
The record was accomplished during the 50th-anniversary celebrations of the Apollo 11 moon landing, as a tribute to the past, present, and future of space exploration. One More Orbit launched from Space Florida's Launch and Landing Facility (the former Shuttle Landing Facility) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, from where Apollo 11 launched their historic mission 50 years ago. The One More Orbit flight mission launched at 09:32 EDT – the exact same time as Apollo 11. The record-breaking flight mission has since become a book and feature documentary. One More Orbit speed record is certified by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) and GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™.
