Solar Impulse 2 reaches Hawaii, shatters records in historic Pacific flight. Solar Impulse 2 landed in Hawaii Friday, ending its epic 5,139-mile journey from Japan after five days of solar-powered flight.
The fuel-free flight from Nagoya to Honolulu’s Kalaeloa Airport was the longest and riskiest leg of Solar Impulse 2’s round-the-world odyssey.

Just how much would it cost to put passengers up in a hotel in Japan for a month while waiting for good weather? Hope this is privately funded rather another Obama bend over and take it, taxpayers.

It is a privately funded Swiss endeavour, and no public funding from the USA is involved.
