Ecuador boy sets zero-G flight record

Saturday, June 21, 2008

QUITO, Ecuador —  A 7-year-old Ecuador boy has become the youngest passenger ever aboard a zero-gravity flight.

Jules Nader says he wasn't scared during the four minutes of weightlessness he experienced aboard an air force plane.

He told The Associated Press on Friday that he felt "like Spider-Man."

Nader's 10-year-old brother Gerard also made the flight.

Ecuadorean newspaper El Universo quoted Guinness World Records representative Mariamartha Rubano as confirming that Nader set the record. Guinness did not answer calls from the AP.
