Solar powered planeThree days after taking off from New York, the solar powered plane Impulse II, landed today in the Spanish city of Seville after crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

The plane driven in turn by Swiss aviators Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, arrived early Thursday at Seville airport San Pablo after covering a distance of 6272 kilometers.

It took two days, 23 hours and 10 minutes for plane Impulse II to cross the North Atlantic, after it took off in the early hours of last Monday from JFK airport in New York. The journey of just over 71 hours was the fifteenth stretch around the world for Impulse II, flying day and night without fuel fossil.

This journey of almost 6300 kilometers, is considered one of the most difficult stages of the project due to its duration, weather conditions and heavy air traffic area.

With its arrival in Spain, the aircraft completed the 15th stage of its orbit around the planet after passing through Oman, India, Myanmar, China, Japan and the United States.
