The Slovenia Times

Back on Track Around Globe


The 300-kilogramme Virus SW 914 plane suffered two cracks in its rear and two members of the GreenLight World Flight team were sent from Slovenia to attend to the damage.

After the repair, the plane is ready for the next mayor challenge, the flight over the Himalayas in the coming stages, the team wrote on Monday.

Lenarčič had to wait another day following the repair due to a tropical storm in Darwin, his original destination, but then decided to re-route to Broome. His next destination is Jakarta, Indonesia.

Lenarčič embarked on his solo flight around the world from the Ljubljana airport on 7 January after the start of his venture had to be postponed several times due to different problems.

As part of his solo-flight around the globe dubbed World Green Flight as the plane is the most efficient one in its class, Lenarčič has already crossed the Pacific and landed on the Antarctic in what was the first landing of a Slovenian plane on the continent.

He plans to travel 80,000-kilometres and fly over 60 countries, 120 national parks, three oceans and the highest peaks of five continents.
