Okay, I didn't know what to expect from that video, but I must say, I found it quite interesting. I can't imagine being stuck on a plane that small, having to do the same thing over and over for over two months... Talk about a long flight.

... not sure I'd call it the longest though.

The longest flight in the world is that one when you're on a plane that just left the international boiled egg and baked bean festival and you're seated next to a screaming baby the entire time.

128 ground to air refuelings ???

I am a tiny bit skeptical about them not landing and immediately taking off.

I'm going to guess either the pilot seat was a special edition with a horseshoe-shaped seat, or the plan had a rather conspicuous hole somewhere in the rear of the cabin.

After the seat STC was approved and it was TSO'd it became the first $5,000 toilet seat. It's also rumored that the designer had earlier worked on the Norden bombsight.
