The Swiss-made Solar Impulse 2, a soloar-powered airplane, landed late Saturday in Dayton, Ohio, where inventors Wilbur and Orville Wright grew up. The plane took off from Tulsa International Airport before 5 a.m. Saturday. The flight to Dayton International Airport took 17 hours.
The plane has been flying around the world. Its flight began in March 2015 from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, and made stops in Oman, Myanmar, China and Japan.
The plane will be in Dayton until early next week.
Before the plane goes to Europe and northern Africa, it will have a stop first in New York.
