A solar-powered plane has completed the final journey of its global flight, landing in Abu Dhabi.
Solar Impulse concluded an 18-month trip today, flying a total of 40,000 kilometres using clean technologies.
The 17,000-panel aeroplane touched down in the UAE capital, where it began its journey last year, after flying more than 48 hours from Cairo.
In a statement, the team said: “The solar airplane has now successfully made it full circle around the world, proving that clean technologies can really achieve the impossible.
“Completing a 13-year exploit is perhaps the biggest challenge we now face but as always, there are new adventures to come. And for the Solar Impulse team, there definitely will be a new dream seeking to be achieved.”
