NEW YORK -- Solar Impulse 2, the solar-powered airplane on a globe-circling voyage that began more than a year ago in the United Arab Emirates, reached a milestone Saturday, completing a trip across the United States with a Statue of Liberty fly-by before landing in New York.
The Swiss-made plane landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport at 4 a.m. after a 4 hour 41 minute flight of about 165 miles from Lehigh Valley International Airport in Pennsylvania. Its trip across the U.S. mainland began April 24, when Solar Impulse landed in San Francisco from Hawaii.
