GlobalFlyer Suffers "Considerable Damage"

Steve Fossett's latest record-setting flight attempt in the Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer has hit a snag following a refueling mishap that Florida Today reports did "considerable damage" to one of the aircraft's wings.

No information yet on whether the flight attempt will need to be postponed or the full extent of the damage, just that the wing-tip struck a fuel truck and suffered damage.
