Solar plane force lands

A solar powered aircraft force lands in Nagoya in Japan due to technical lacunae in its wings where the Solar power is harnessed. Chilly weather conditions were said to have hit the solar panels. The carbon fibre single-seat Solar Impulse 2 aircraft has a 72-meter wingspan. The plane was flying from China to Hawai. The trans-Pacific passage is the sixth leg of the plane’s around-the-world, 35,000-km journey. The plane was the brain child of two Swiss scientists.
