Zephyr Solar Plane Lands After Over 2 Weeks In the Air | July, 23 2010 | A week ago we wrote about the Zephyr "Eternal Aircraft", an unmanned solar plane that had just broken many records by staying up in the air for 7 days.

Well, the Zephyr has finally landed at the US Army's Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona after 14 days and 24 minutes, setting a new record that will no doubt be broken the next time the Zephyr decides to take off (at this point, breaking records seems to only be a matter of being patient enough, since the solar plane doesn't need refueling anyway) (Nino Guevara Ruwano)
