Make sure you witness the SOLAR IMPULSE 2, that is on display till 6 pm today at the AHMEDABAD AIRPORT, which is the only airplane of perpetual endurance, able to fly day and night on solar power, without a drop of fuel.
When you were a kid, didn't you always love watching planes flying overhead with a big smile coming across? On 10th March, even after years I fel the same when I rushed to my terrace to see a unique plane flying over. The SOLAR IMPULSE 2!
Ahmedabad is proud & in fact honoured to be the first stop stop in the country for this one of a kind plane rather than the Metro Cities. For those who don't know what SOLAR IMPULSE 2 is then to narrow it down in a few words, I can state that Solar Impulse is a Swiss long-range solar-powered aircraft project led by Swiss psychiatrist and aeronaut Bertrand Piccard, who co-piloted the first balloon to circle the world non-stop and Swiss businessman André Borschberg. The privately financed project hopes to achieve the first circumnavigation of the Earth by a piloted fixed-wing aircraft using only solar power. No fuel whatsoever. 
After Ahmedabad, the Swiss team will head to yet another Indian city, Varansi followed by Myanmar; Chongqing & Nanjing in China; After crossing the Pacific, it will land in Hawaii; fly across the US, with stops in Phoenix & New York City; Crossing the Atlantic, to either Southern Europe or Morocco, finally ending up at Abu Dhabi, where it took off for the first time.
Inquisitive enough? You should be. Make sure that don't miss out on one of the most innovative beauties of Technology at the Airport TODAY! Cheers.
Timings: Till 6 pm
Venue: Ahmedabad Airport
