Steve Fossett passed over Hawaii this morning at 0330 GMT on his way back to Kansas. However, it appears he may have less fuel left than expected. Just like to say good luck to him and the team on the round the world flight now he's nearly finished.

Quick update, Steve Fossett crossed the Californian coast around 1400 GMT and is expected to land back in Kansas at 1920 GMT.
Looks like an aviation record is about to be made, as Petter says, it doesn't happen too often these days.
