Update: Solar Impulse Flies for 26 Hours!

The Solar Impulse HB-SIA, with André Borschberg at its controls, successfully landed this morning after flying for more than 26 hours.

The plane was in the air the all day and all night, relying entirely on solar energy. The flight is the longest and highest in the history of solar aviation.

“I’ve been a pilot for 40 years now, but this flight has been the most incredible one of my flying career,” Borschberg said as he was leaving the cockpit. “I have just flown more than 26 hours without using a drop of fuel and without causing any pollution!”
