Solar Impulse 2 diverted to and landed in Nagoya (Japan)


Solar Impulse

Unfortunately the current weather window to reach Hawaii has closed. The cold front is too dangerous to cross, so we have decided to land in Nagoya Airfield, also known as Komaki Airport, and wait for better weather conditions in order to continue. We would like to thank JCAB, MILIT, MOFA, Japanese Customs and Immigration JSDF, Nakanihon Air Service, Centrair and Kuehne-Nagel?, for their incredible help to our team in Nagoya.

In the moment of truth – since Bertrand Piccard had the idea of an airplane flying day and night without fuel, André Borschberg originally took off with Solar Impulse from Nanjing to Hawaii on Saturday 30 at 18:39UTC in what was the first oceanic, exploration and longest leg of the Round-the-World Solar Flight.
