Billings man completes twelve day, 70 hour flight

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - Colten Overstreet departed from Billings Logan International Airport in August.

Twelve days later and after stops in  South Africa, Europe, Iceland, Greenland, and Canada the Billings pilot completed the 70 hour flight by touching back down at Billings Logan International Airport at around 5:30 p.m. on Friday evening.  

SKY Source Aviation purchased the personal aircraft from Johannesburg, South Africa and tabbed Overstreet as the man to bring it home.

The two year pilot made stops in 13 countries including Greece, France and Italy before landing safely in the Magic City.

Overstreet arrived to cheers and hugs from friends and family as they believe it's one of the longest flights completed by a Billings pilot.

The aircraft will be used for training by SKY Source Aviation.
