17-Year-Old Mack Rutherford Becomes Youngest Person to Fly Solo Around World

August 25, 2022

When a plane touched down, it landed its pilot into the record books. That’s because Mack Rutherford, 17, just completed a solo trip around the world. He’s the youngest person to do so and earned himself a Guinness World Record. He’s also the youngest person to fly around the world in a microlight plane. Flying is in Mack’s blood as his older sister, Zara, completed her around-the-world solo flight in January at age 19. Inside Edition Digital’s Mara Montalbano has more.
