Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

According to the Virgin GlobalFlyer website, Steve Fossett and GlobalFlyer have reached the continental US and are passing just south of Los Angeles en route to Salina, Kansas.

This seems to indicate a good chance of success for the round-the-world adventurer, despite earlier worries over fuel levels. The website also notes that Fossett is now being accompanied by an intercept aircraft which reports "true and level flight" of the GlobalFlyer. ®
