Oops! He did it again...this time SOLO! On July 22, 1933, Wiley Hardeman Post and his Lockheed Model 5C Vega, The Winnie Mae of Oklahoma, landed at Floyd Bennett Field, Long Island, New York. This completed the first SOLO trip around the world. Post had departed from there on July 15th and in 7 days, 18 hours, 49½ minutes, he flew 15,596 miles (25,099.3 kilometers), circling the Northern Hemisphere. He made 11 stops for fuel and rest, and had one minor accident which required repairs to the airplane. In 1931, he had flown approximately the same route, with a navigator, Harold Gatty, aboard. For this flight Post was by himself and became the first pilot to have flown around the world twice.
