Young Swiss pilot Sebastian Benz flew his Nova Triton 360.47km on 10 January from Deniliquin in NSW, Australia, unoficially taking Godfrey Wenness’ longstanding 335km record from him.
Sebastian has been making full use of the Australian summer, and the seven-hour flight on 10 January is one of five flights of greater than 100km that he has already flown in 2012.
