Solar Impulse plane
#SolarImpulse is back again, from Japan to Hawaii
Our solar-powered plane attempting to circumnavigate the globe, powered by just the solar warming.
IT waited in japan for a break for the right opening. And it bagan its journey form Japan to Hawaai which takes 5 days.
It would be the longest solo flight in history.
The record-breaking attempt to cross the Pacific Ocean in a solar-powered plane was aborted after bad weather forced the pilot to make an unscheduled stop in the Japanese city of Nagoya.
The crossing was part of the plane’s attempt to circumnavigate the globe using only the energy of the Sun. E&T reported on this latest development in the Solar Impulse 2 story in full yesterday.
Solar Impulse 2, the plane powered solely by photovoltaics, has taken off from Abu Dhabi for its challenging round-the-world trip.
The Solar Impulse 2, a reiteration of the earlier Solar Impulse 1 that successfully crossed America in 2013, has set out from Al Bateen Executive Airport at 7.15am UTC for Oman with Andre Borschberg, one of the two project’s creators aboard.
