Endurance

Show us what endurance means to you. Is it that high-school diploma, beads of sweat earned on a long run, a treasured family heirloom, or something else entirely?

The flight endurance record is the longest amount of time an aircraft of a particular category spent in flight without landing. It can be a solo event, or multiple people can take turns piloting the aircraft, as long as all pilots remain in the aircraft. The limit initially was the amount of fuel that could be stored for the flight, but aerial refueling (the process of transferring fuel from one aircraft ( the tanker) to another (the receiver) during flight) extended that parameter.

Is that a spinning wheel? Looks like the people either endured the ride or didn’t risk taking it.
