Solar Impulse pilot pledges to continue flight after Japan stop

0

NAGOYA, Japan: The pilot of record-breaking Solar Impulse 2 pledged Tuesday to continue his adventure after the high-tech aircraft made an unexpected stop in Japan to avoid bad weather. The landing in Nagoya, on Japan’s main island, concluded what had been the aircraft’s longest non-stop period of flight. But it nevertheless cut short what was due to have been a marathon trip across the Pacific Ocean, the longest single leg of an effort to raise awareness of green energy by circumnavigating the globe powered only by the sun.
