US adventurer Steve Fossett was approaching the coast of Pakistan late Tuesday after overcoming a navigation equipment problem that threatened to derail his historic bid to make the first non-stop flight around the world without refueling. The GlobalFlyer was over the Arabian Sea heading east towards Karachi, Pakistan at speeds of around 340 knots (390 miles per hour/630 kilometers per hour).
