Adventurer Fedor Konyukhov has smashed the world record for flying in a hot air balloon, non-stop around the world.
The trip took the Russian 11 days to complete. The 65-year old Russian adventurer touched back down to Earth in Western Australia on Sunday.
Fedor’s balloon is 56 metres tall and uses helium and hot air to float.
Flying at heights of up to 9,000 metres above the Earth, Fedor has had to wear an oxygen mask to help him breathe, and could only sleep for four hours a day in between checking his equipment.
The specially made balloon was built in Bristol in the UK, which is famous for its annual hot air balloon festival.
