Si2 has arrived in Europe after 71 hours and 8 minutes of flying across the Atlantic Ocean

What a moment to remember! Bertrand Piccard has safely landed in Seville, Spain after spending 71 hours and 8 minutes flying across the Atlantic Ocean in a solar airplane, welcomed there by André Borschberg. He took off from New York City at 6:30AM UTC, 8:30AM CET, 2:30AM EDT on June 20th and has finally reached Europe after a spectacular flight. Charles Lindbergh completed the first transatlantic flight in 1927 from New York to Paris, and now Bertrand Piccard brings aviation to the next level with clean technology. I bet you Lindbergh never imaged a solar airplane could do the same.

Watch a compilation of the best moments during the flight here.

Relive the flight

Big oil will have a time attempting to suppress solar energy after this.Solar systems will eventually become very affordable & hard to ignore.
