Mack Rutherford, a 17 year old pilot, is attempting to become the youngest person to fly around the globe solo. Rutherford left Sophia, Bulgaria on March 23.
He recently flew his Shark ultralight plane down the Aleutian Chain, landing at Attu, Shemya Island, and Adak. Rutherford arrived at Unalaska on August 1. When I last checked his online tracker, Rutherford was in Ketchikan, following the coast down to Mexico. Although, by now, Mack has no doubt moved further on down the coast.
The young, Belgian-Brit Adventurer is expecting to complete his circumnavigation by the end of August.
“JAWS” was released on June 20, 1975 to 464 theaters in North America. The film had a budget of roughly $8 million and did $7 million at the box office opening weekend. It was the first film to gross over $100 million.
This weekend, “JAWS” returns to the big screen for its 40th Anniversary. It will appear in 500 theaters across the country, just in time for the Summer Solstice.
