Hanging from the roof at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport is the Cessna 172 known as “Hacienda,” named after the hotel that sponsored the record flight. That flight, which began with a takeoff in 1958 and ended with a landing more than two months later, set a record that still stands. Photo by Mr. Satterly, CC0, via Wikimedia Commons
