The plane on solar batteries, successfully crossed the Atlantic Ocean.

This morning, a solar-powered aircraft Solar Impulse 2 successfully landed in the Spanish city of Seville, and the flight across the Atlantic Ocean went through absolutely without any problems. The plane took off from New York on June 20, and after 70 hours it was able to fly to the "old world", from where, in the coming days, the plane will continue its round-the-world flight.

It should be noted that the expectations of aircraft about the aircraft «Solar Impulse 2» is not justified - the aircraft was unable to complete the circumnavigation flight on time because of technical problems, however, the creators still intend to make a flight around the world.
