On July 21, the bruno banani trike will began a trip around the world planned to last approximately 988 days, cross five continents, 74 countries, three oceans, and make a brief stop at AirVenture at approximately 12 p.m. Thursday.
Piloting the three-wheel, weight-shift ultralight are adventurers Andreas Zmuda and his partner Doreen Krober; they aim to set seven world records.
Supporting the event is European underwear company bruno banani, who hope to justifiably receive the quality seal "world proof" after the trike's journey is complete.
The worldwide event started in Florida and will proceed across North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia before landing in Sydney on February 15, 2015.
The traveling duo will document their three-year journey in their blog with detailed reports and photos with help from close-to-the-action 3-D cameras on the trike's wings. The trike can also be tracked on their website, Trike-Globetrotter.com, or on the Trike-Globetrotter Facebook page.
