"Watch the historic New York landing of Solar Impulse’s first US cross-country solar powered flight"Happening live at http://www.google.com/landing/solarimpulse/Don't know if we'll get a live feed from the plane, the airport or none at all.At any rate, if you want to watch new history...
We now have plane cam!
Don't forget sound.
No replies? I guess I'm a cult of one. Now at ground cam.They just said plane to land in ~ 20 minutes.
Pretty cool! Thanks for the link.But what a weird looking giant insect - it seemed to just slowly float to the ground, not truly "flying" at all.
That was fun!
I hope they do some instant replays. If not, I'm sure it will be plastered all over YouTube.Wished I'd known about this earlier so I could have read up on it first.I didn't see one hint about this all day on MSN or Yahoo. The slackers...
They sure blew it on the time estimate. Plane has landed.
Dropped by YouTube. Discovered this Solar Impulse plane thing has been going on for 2 years. Oh, well. At least I got to see this. A nice ending to a nice day.Afterthought... Solar plane, right? Flying and landing at night. Wonder what storage mechanism they used. Lithium batteries? Capacitors? Both?
A closing post.This article explains about the "floating" landing and everything else as to the flight. Plus, gives a thorough background review. http://www.nbcnews.com/science/solar-im … 6C10551691
A totally awesome plane, my husband saw it flying over the Silicone Valley.
