The solar-powered aircraft Solar Impulse 2 was forced to land at Nagoya in Japan, but has once again lifted off and is now on its way to Hawaii.
Endeavoring to reach Hawaii from Japan to encourage the use of clean technologies, the solar powered aircraft of Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg attempts the longest exploration leg of the Solar Impulse’s Round-The-World mission.
At the controls, André will venture into the unknown. This flight is demanding and challenging particularly given its duration: 120 hours on solar power only. It is a feat never accomplished before in the world of aviation.
The eagle has landed.
