Peter Baker stands proudly in front of his Questair Venture, the plane he and secondary pilot David Corey took from Georgia to San Diego with just one stop for refueling in Texas. The flight landed them in the record books for the world's fastest transcontinental flight from east to west in a plane weighing less than 1,000 kilograms. They broke the record by more than 100 miles per hour in the home-built airplane.
