A business traveler from Chicago reached a rare milestone before landing at O'Hare International Airport.

United Airlines threw Tom Stuker a party upon his arrival. The automotive sales consultant is the first United passenger to travel 10 million miles in flight. The 57-year-old has taken some 5,962 flights on the airline.

As a tribute to their most-loyal frequent flyer, United put Stuker's name on one of its jumbo jets.

The distance represented by those 10 million flyer miles is roughly equal to 20 round trips to the moon.
