الشابة البريطانية تصبح أصغر امرأة تطير بمفردها حول العالم

By Phil Bainbridge

January 17, 2022 - بريطانية تبلغ من العمر 19 عاماً أصبحت أصغر امرأة تطير بمفردها حول العالم، وأصغر شخص يقوم برحلة مسافتها 52.080.3 كيلومتراً لمدة 200 ساعة بطائرة خفيفة الوزن.

Zara Rutherford flew clockwise around the world, crossing 41 countries and five continents, making two crossings of the Equator, to take in Colombia and Indonesia. The low weight of her Shark UL microlight plane means it will only require around 2,500 litres of fuel for the entire journey, less than a typical passenger jet uses in 10 minutes.

Despite flying from a young age and coming from a family of aviators, Rutherford only obtained her full flying license a year before she took off.
