Hot-air Heaven

A two-man team made up of a Russian and American pilot has just broken a record by flying their hot air balloon, the Two Eagles, across the Pacific Ocean. The balloonists, Troy Bradley and Leonid Tiukhtyaev, stayed aloft for 16 hours and 37 minutes. They departed Saga, Japan and landed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, traveling 6646 miles (10,696 km).
