Chandler was part of one man’s attempt to set a world record over the weekend.
Pilot Michael Combs and his son, Daniel Routh, refueled Saturday morning at Chandler Municipal Airport, while trying to set a world record for a transcontinental flight in a light aircraft.
The two fell short of their goal with weather playing a factor, but did manage to get coast to coast in 49 hours.
As of Monday afternoon, the pair was starting back to California after making it to North Carolina.
Combs had a near-death experience three years ago and this flight was part of his dream to live out his goals and inspire others to do the same.
