Solar Impulse plane prepares to go intercontinental

Solar-powered plane Solar Impulse is well into its first intercontinental journey from Payerne in Switzerland to Rabat in Morocco.

Solar Impulse took just over 17 hours to fly first to Madrid-Barajas airport, seen here landing at 1.28 am local time today.

Following some days' technical adjustments and a change of pilots, the proptype plane is due to continue with its second leg to the 16-megawatt Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy plant near Rab
