Jovem segue as pisadas da irmã numa volta ao mundo a solo

By Jordi Bou

March 17, 2022 - Mack Rutherford, de 16 anos, vai tentar ser a pessoa mais jovem a dar a volta ao mundo num voo a solo – um feito que a sua irmã Zara, de 19 anos, concluiu em janeiro de 2022.

The British-Belgian teenager, currently at school in England, is due to take off from the Bulgarian capital Sofia on March 17 and expects to be gone for two to three months.

His sister Zara became, on January 20, the youngest woman, at 19, to fly solo around the world, and also the first person to do so in a microlight plane, after a five-month, five-continent odyssey in her Shark ultralight.

If successful, Mack will also become the youngest male to complete a solo round-the-world flight, beating the record set by Travis Ludlow in 2021, at the age of 18.
