    No one cares about planes.

    It looks like they were better at flying than they were at landing

    They failed at navigation.Their primitive radio failed shortly after take off.They had limited fuel.The fact that these jokers even hit the proper Continent was a major triumph.

    it wasn’t a non-stop flight. They stopped at the end. If they hadn’t they would still be up there.
