Solar impulse resumes round-the-world flight
from FLYING Magazine
Somewhere over the Pacific Ocean, the Solar Impulse Si2 is flying without fuel. But thankfully, it’s no emergency. The all-solar-powered Si2 resumed its journey around the world this morning, taking off from Hawaii for a nearly three-day trip to Mountain View, California. This trip marks the ninth leg of the plane's flight, which began last spring in Abu Dhabi but was delayed nine months after a record-breaking five-day trip from Japan to Hawaii put so much stress on the Si2's batteries that the airplane had to be grounded.
