Pilot Breaks 6000 Hours In The F-16

From an USAF Press Release

Congratulations Lt. Col. Brill.

Air Force pilot breaks own world aviation record

BALAD AIR BASE, Iraq -- Two F-16 Fighting Falcons stop at the arming pad here before embarking on a mission, May 1. Lt. Col. Michael Brill (top), a 421st Expeditionary Fighter Squadron pilot, broke his own world record of 5,000 flying hours in the F-16 Fighting Falcon when he surpassed the 6,000 hours milestone May 2.

Not to pick nits but is being the high time guy in a certain aircraft really a "world record"? It's not like he ate the most hot dogs in 2 minutes or anything like that.
