Solar Impulse Atlantic leg starts
Solar Impulse 2 is expected to launch from New York to Seville, Spain, on the longest leg of its circumnavigation using solar power only. The flight was to start recently but weather concerns delayed it by a day. The flight will take an estimated 90 hours and will be flown by Bertrand Piccard. The aircraft flew the Pacific in two legs with a prolonged stop in Hawaii to repair batteries damaged in the flight from Japan. Piccard splits the flying with Andre Borschberg.
