I was fortunate enough to get a ticket to view the Solarimpulse aircraft at the Phoenix International Airport yesterday.
The Solarimpulse is attempting to fly across the USA using solar power only. This is the 1st leg of the journey that began in San Francisco. It arrived early Saturday morning on May 4th, 2013. Next stop will be Texas. It’s a lot bigger than I first imagined it would be. The wingspan is a wide as an airliner. It’s so wide I wasn’t able to get a photo of the entire aircraft inside this temporary hanger they had set up.
My photos don’t do this amazing aircraft justice. Click on the link below to see the official website.
