It's about 0.00000004 times as long as The Circumfrence of Earth
In other words, 0.0078 furlongs is 0.000000039154332 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 25,539,958 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 199,211.670 furlongs. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
