Solar Impulse 2, a zero-fuel airplane, landed in Cairo, Wednesday morning, as it completed its penultimate flight in an attempt to fly around the world.
The plane, which is flown by Swiss-adventurer Andre Borschberg, left Spain's Seville on Monday morning, flew over the Mediterranean Sea, crossing Tunisia, Algeria, Malta, Italy and Greece on its way, finally landing 50 hours later in Egypt.
On its trip around the world, the aircraft has flown over 35,000 km on all continents. The plane has a wingspan of 72 metres (236 foot), which is wider than a 747 jumbo jet, but weighs only 2.3 tonnes. It started the world trip on March 2015 from Abu Dhabi, and will conclude the journey by flying from Cairo to the same destination.
