A 66-year-old British woman and her co-pilot have set a record by flying around the world over both the north and south poles in a helicopter.
Jennifer Murray and Colin Bodill became the first people to make the 32,000-mile journey after 171 days and 101 times refueling stops, Britain's The Telegraph reported Thursday.
The journey ended when the pair landed this week in Fort Worth, Texas, where they had left Texas last Dec. 5.
The flying duo's epic adventure is even more impressive by the fact that in 2003 Murray and Bodill suffered serious injuries after crashing into an Antarctic ice shelf.
"We've just landed and this is the most incredible moment. It's emotional, it's just terrific," Murray told The Telegraph. "We really have achieved it this time; we've done what no pilot has ever done before."
She said it would make her sad to leave the helicopter that has been her home for five months but added: "It just feels wonderful," the newspaper reported.
