The READY System Used Again For Record-Setting Flight
April 20, 2005
As he did for the last successful around-the-world balloon flight for Aviator Steve Fossett, Belgian meteorologist David Dehenauw used NOAA’s NCEP Global Forecast System (GFS) forecasts and NOAA ARL’s READY website to successfully guide Fossett to become the first person to fly solo, non-stop, around the world. Details on the flight can be found in a recent NOAA press release.
