Australian teenager Ryan Campbell - on solid ground after an epic journey.

The 19-year-old is the youngest person ever to have flown solo around the world.

And after travelling for 70 days making 34 stops in 15 countries, landing on home turf was a welcome reward.

SOUNDBITE: Ryan Campbell, Australian pilot and world record holder, saying (English):

"I've been thinking about that landing for a long, long time, and you know, probably even before it was a reality of actually going. And it was a good one, so I was happy with that."
