Solar Impulse took off for its first intl. flight

piripiri piripiri writes  |  more than 2 years ago

piripiri (1476949) writes "The prototype plane Solar Impulse, which draws its power from the sun, has took off today at 06:40 GMT from Payerne, Switzerland and is expected to pass over Luxembourg and land at Brussels airport at approximately 9pm (GMT+2). Once again, the plane will be piloted by André Borschberg, who achieved the world's first manned 26 hour solar flight in 2010. The event can be tracked via the official iOS and Android smart phone applications or online via the Solar Impulse website or follow the project on twitter or YouTube."
