Hardest Cessna 172 Flight Preparation Quiz

Did you know that a Cessna 172 is holding the world record for the longest flight? Once upon a time in the year 1958 on December 4, Robert Timm and John Cook took off from McCarran Airfield, Las Vegas. 64 days, 22 hours, 19 minutes and 5 seconds later they landed their newly built Cessna with registration number N9172B.

Food and water were supplied by a car matching their speed somewhere on a straight road in the desert. Fuel was transferred from a fuel truck to an auxiliary tank. Then pumped into the wing tanks.
