Submission + - Solar plane lands after 1st international flight (msn.com)

fysdt writes: "A solar-powered plane landed in Brussels on Friday evening after a 12-hour flight from Switzerland, the futuristic aircraft's first international sortie.

The Solar Impulse single-seater prototype took off from Payerne airfield in Switzerland at 8:40 a.m. (0640 GMT; 2:40 a.m. EDT) after a three-hour delay because of strong winds."
