The Star-Democrat, Easton, Maryland, January 5, 1951
In 2000 we shall be able to fly around the world in a day.
Google says: The average commercial jet liner travels about 550 mph, and the Earth is around 26,000 miles in circumference. If a commercial plane could make the trip without refueling, it would take over 47 hours. A large commercial jetliner has a range of about 5,000 miles, so it would need to land and refuel several times.
