Boeing is out to beat Airbus by distance!

HONG KONG – A Boeing Co. jet took off Wednesday from Hong Kong to try breaking the record for the longest nonstop flight by a commercial jet — a trip that involves flying over the Pacific Ocean and North America before landing in London.“We plan to smash the current record,” said Captain Suzanna Darcy-Hennemann, one of the four pilots of the 777-200LR Worldliner, one of Boeing’s newest planes.The flight was expected to take about 23 hours and cover more than 12,586 miles, a Boeing statement said.

Here’s rooting for good ‘ole USA.
