Adventurer Steve Fossett, the first person to fly solo in a balloon around the globe, was among those inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame Saturday.
The 63-year-old Fossett of Beaver Creek, CO says he plans to go to Argentina in November in an effort to break a glider record.
In 2002, Fossett became the first person to fly around the world alone in a balloon.
Three years later, he became the first person to fly a plane solo around the world without refueling.
He and a co-pilot also claim to have set a world glider altitude record of 50-thousand-671 feet during a flight in August over the Andes Mountains.
Other inductees include astronaut Sally Ride.
