Solar-Powered Plane Flys From Japan to Hawaii

4 Jul 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Solar Impulse 2 reaches Hawaii, shatters records in historic Pacific flight.

On Tuesday Solar Impulse 2 broke the record for longest solar-powered flight in terms of distance and duration, easily surpassing the 1,491-mile, 44-hour record Borschberg set when flying from China to Japan on the previous leg of the trip. The former Swiss military pilot has navigated difficult weather conditions and battled exhaustion from the plane’s cramped cockpit, which is too small to stand in. The plane is the brainchild of explorer and Solar Impulse Chairman Bertrand Piccard, who is taking it in turns with his fellow Swiss pilot Borschberg to fly the solar-powered aircraft on its five-month-journey across the globe.
