Follow Solar Impulse Live
The Solar Impulse is currently on the longest leg of its round the world flight. The Solar Impulse hopes to make the first circumnavigation of the globe by a piloted fixed-wing aircraft using only solar power.
The plane is now on the longest part of its journey from Nagoya, Japan to Hawaii. The journey is expected to take 120 hours, around five days and five nights. You can follow the flight live on the Solar Impulse website, which includes a live YouTube feed and a Google Map of the journey.
Unfortunately the map on the Solar Impulse website is a little obscured. I find it much easier to follow the plane live on FlightRadar24. Not only does FlightRadr24 have a larger map but you can also view the plane's current altitude and speed.
