Between Friday and Sunday last week, the sleek single-seat carbon fiber airplane broke no less than five world records. While the numbers have not yet been confirmed by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI), the preliminary numbers released by the airplane's designer, Paulo Iscold, indicate that Anequim shattered the previous records in each category. In the category of speed over a 3 km course, the Anequim flew at 521.08 km/hr (281 knots), about 55 km/hr faster than the previous record, set by the DR-90 Nemesis. Another previous Nemesis record, speed over 15 km, previously set at 455.8 km/hr, was increased by Anequim to 511.19 km/hr (276 knots). And in two additional categories, the speed over a 100 km closed course and a 500 km closed course, Anequim blasted the previous records by more than 100 km/hr, clocking in at 490.14 km/hr (265 knots) and 493.74 km/hr (267 knots) respectively.
