Two Eagles transoceanic balloon trek has Fulton engineering connection

The Two Eagles balloon and its pilots, Leonid Tiukhtyaev and Troy Bradley, set off from Japan on a journey across the Pacific Ocean in an attempt to set a new distance record for gas balloons. By the time Bradley and Tiukhtyaev hit the ground, they’d made history: having traveled some 6,646 miles (10,696 kilometers) and spending 161 hours and 17 minutes aloft in the air together.
