July 22, 1933: Wiley Post completes first solo around-the-world flight in 7 Days
On this day in 1933, American aviator Wiley Post returned to New York after traveling 15,596 miles in the first solo around-the-world flight.  The flight lasted 7 days, 18 hours, and 49 minutes, during which time Post made 11 stops for fuel and rest. 
Post’s plane, the Winnie Mae (named for his daughter), is now on display at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.  In 1931, he completed an 8-day around-the-world trip on this plane along with navigator Harold Gatty.

"You know, it probably would be better if I was over on this camera. [Pause] Okay. Well, now that I’m over on this camera it probably would be better if you put the cards over here.”

As a side note, the most dangerous job in 1997 was being an astronaut on Mir.
