Countersigned by the Voyager's pilots, Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager
On December 14, 1986, Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager squeezed into the phone booth-sized cockpit of Voyager in man's first attempt to circumnavigate the globe without refueling. Voyager, which weighed only 2,500 pounds empty and 10,500 pounds fully fueled, was the culmination of a dream that began in 1981. Voyager was not the work of government. Bert Rutan, Dick Rutan's younger brother, designed the special aircraft, which was then built by volunteers from other aviation projects. Several manufacturers provided parts and materials. Cramped in a tiny space, buffeted by winds and storms and facing dwindling fuel supply, Voyager's pilots flew on and returned to Edwards Air Force Base nine days after setting out, making their dream reality and setting a record with the 26,000 mile flight. Typhoon Marge, a 600-mile wide storm, ominously blocked their path, but Voyager succeeds in beating the storm by turning south and breaking into clear weather. Two people alone, a man and a woman, faced the challenge of nature head-on and defied all obstacles in their path. Dick Rutan's and Jeana Yeager's flight on Voyager did as much for the human spirit as it did for aviation. - CK

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, you must include your phone number and location. We'll get back to you quickly.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" or "bid" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
