The Denglers, a father and son duo from Canada, are planning their trip to fly around the world in a helicopter. Bob Dengler, 77, and his son Steve, 48, are both engineers and will be joined on board with retired Canadian astronaut Dave Williams. They plan to travel from their home base in Vaughan, touching down in 14 countries and 103 airports. The Bell 429 Global Ranger will be fitted with a Honeywell’s Aspire 200 satellite Internet broadband system, which will allow them to share live videos and photos, reports Ottawa Citizen.
