Mack Rutherford, a 17-year-old British-Belgian teenager, broke the world record set by Travis Ludlow and became the youngest pilot to fly around the world alone.
Mack Rutherford, 17, took off from Sofia, Bulgaria on March 23 this year and flew over Italy and Greece before sailing across Asia, Africa, the US and two oceans.
The aviator landed again in the Bulgarian capital on Wednesday – five months after he set off on his odyssey, according to Sky News.

He broke the world record set by 18-year-old Travis Ludlow in 2021, who accomplished the feat at 18 years and 150 days.
Mark was encouraged by his sister Zara, who in January became the youngest woman to fly around the world at 19.
