Billionaire aviator Steve Fossett set a number of records before disappearing into the Sierra Nevada Mountains in 2007. Fossett is seen here in framed display, piloting his Virgin Atlantic N277SF GlobalFlyer single jet engine plane, which he flew in setting several of his many records. Among the records accomplished with this unique engineering marvel, are the fastest to circumnavigate the world without stopping or refueling and the farthest distance without landing. LE Numbered “2/250”, this inspiring photograph is framed to overall dimensions of 39-1/2 x 29-1/2” with a visible image area of 29 x 19-1/2”. Fossett (d.2007) has provided a big and bold (“9-10”) autograph at bottom right on this handsome piece, which presents in excellent condition with deference to one small chip on the bottom edge of the frame.
