Flew for three days straight - broke all records

Flew for three days straight - broke all records
The aircraft driven by solar energy has broken the world record even before the trip from Japan to Hawaii is over.

Solar Impulse 2 is a plane that is powered only by solar energy captured by solar panels on the plane. The goal is to fly around the world in 12 stages. On Friday the plane broke all previous records when it comes to fly as far as possible without landing, with only one pilot. And still the plane has not landed.

The previous record was set in 2006 by adventurer Steve Fossett, with 76 hours in the air in one stretch.

It is expected that Solar Impulse 2 will land in Hawaii during Friday. The plane, operated by Andre Borschberg, has been in the air for over three days. He is alone and allowed to sleep for 20 minutes a time while the plane is put on autopilot.
