Nicely done, and well deserved. Getting FAI ratification is no small task by itself.

Congratulations to both John and Dean.

On 9-28-2012 two teams completed a world record flight in California Valley, This week FAI gave it's final approvel and both flights went down in history forever. Great job my friends. Team #1 John Ellias (Pilot), Marquita Ellias (Driver-Observer), Rick Shelby (Observer), Ron McElliott (Directing Official). Team #2 Dean Gradwell (Pilot), Roger Hebner (Driver-Observer), Jeff Jarvis (Observer), Ron McElliott (Directing Official). Both planes were MXC made by RnR and flew same route togather and finished togather flown from different Jeeps.
