Zephyr Solar Plane Lands After Over 2 Weeks In the Air

Treehugger.com | 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)

  1. The solar airplanes Zephyr and Solar Impulse show the way to the future. We believe that we will witness more solar energy applications soon.
