Solar-powered plane’s team holds special session

After a record breaking five-day flight from Japan in July 2015, the solar-powered airplane the Solar Impulse 2 touched down in Hawaiʻi. The innovative plane, with a wingspan longer than a Boeing 747, was housed in the University of Hawaiʻi’s Hangar 111.

The Solar Impulse team recognized the University of Hawaiʻi with an exclusive open house, where invited students and faculty could get a closeup look at the groundbreaking technology.
