The 1/5 scale flying model of Voyager was built by Glenn Dunlap of Cincinnati, Ohio, and donated to the Mojave Transportation Museum Foundation in 2009.
The original Voyager, designed by Burt Rutan and built at Mojave Airport, hangs in the National Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C.
Voyager and its crew of Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager, took-off from Edwards Air Force Base at 8:01 a.m. December 14, 1986, and flew west 26,366 statue miles.
On December 23, nine days, three minutes and 44 seconds later, Voyager landed at Edwards. The flight was the first successful circumnavigation of the planet, non-stop, and non-refueled.
