Flying from the South to North Pole by Helicopter

Adventurers are hard-pressed to find new records to break or new frontiers to conquer. Flying around the world, scaling the peak of Everest, and landing on the moon are all in the record books already.

Anyone forget about record for flying around the world via the South and North Poles in a helicopter?

According to a story on the Aero News Network, Jennifer Murray and Colin Bodill are planning to fly into history by being the first to fly a Bell 407 helicopter pole to pole. The two pilots took off on December 5 to start their journey.

Murray and Bodill landed in Waco, Texas, on December 6 to meet with high school students and discuss their journey. If all goes well, the pilots will arrive at their goal in May 2007.
