Wei Around the World – Mission Accomplished

After 24,901 miles over 68 days, Memphis businessman Wei Chen is home again becoming the 169th member (and first Chinese citizen member) of the Earthrounders’ Club. After a final leg through Ketchikan, Alaska, Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Oskosh, Wisconsin, Chen landed his Socata TBM 850 in Memphis on Friday, July 29 in front of a homecoming crowd of over 500 at the Wilson Air Center. Elgin Long, the first aviator to circle the Earth over the North and South poles in a small plane in 1971, was on hand to welcome Chen as the newest member of the Earthrounders’ Club.

Congratulations to Wei Chen for a job well done.
