The plane's creators, Piccard and Borschberg, said the trip is the first attempt by a solar airplane capable of flying day and night without fuel to fly across America.
The plane took off from Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport at 4:47 a.m. MST Wednesday and is scheduled to arrive in Dallas early Thursday morning. The plane flew its first leg from California in early May. From Dallas, it will fly to Lambert-St. Louis airport, Dulles airport in near Washington and New York’s John F. Kennedy airport. Each flight leg takes 20 or so hours, with multiday stops in each city.
