It was just a year ago that Fakhre Alam became the first Pakistani to circumnavigate the globe solo.

The singer had revealed to Images before the trip, "I have to do 26000 nautical miles and fly through all the mediums of the planet to achieve circumnavigation. We're aiming for a 28-day schedule. The rules state I have to use the same aircraft and be in control of it at all time. I'll be flying to 30 airports around the world."

To commemorate the anniversary of this historic achievement, Alam has launched a book detailing his journey called Mission Parwaaz - Fakhr-e-Alam Making History. As a part of his launch, he presented a copy to the President of Pakistan, Dr. Arif Alvi.

"I have always been proud to be a Pakistani," Said Alam."I undertake things to make my country proud. Mission Parwaaz, a global circumnavigation was a once in a life time adventure very few people get to do."

"I hope to see more Pakistanis to undertake such an endeavor. I can't wait for a Pakistani woman pilot to circumnavigate the planet. Pakistanis have the talent, ability and the heart to do extra ordinary things. My next focus is space travel. I hope I can carry the Pakistani flag into space."

Along with the book, he also announced a documentary in the works, also titled Mission Parwaaz which will air on November 9.
