Solar-powered aircraft Solar Impulse, the zero fuel airplane, makes its first intercontinental trip with the final destination of Rabat, Morocco. The prototype will land in Madrid, Spain for a technical layover, as well as to change pilots.

The solar powered Aircraft "Solar Impulse" (HB-SIA prototype) stands in the hangar after the the first attempt of a night flight powered by the sun was postponed because a telemetric transceiver does not work at the military airport in Payerne, Switzerland. The Swiss team planning to circle the globe in a solar-powered plane has postponed a 24-hour test flight because of this equipment problem. Bertrand Piccard, co-founder of the Solar Impulse team, says he cannot say when the next attempt will be made. But he says the test flight has to happen before the beginning of August because after that the days will be too short to charge the plane's batteries to last through the night. Pilot Andre Borschberg says the problem is down to a German-built piece of measurement equipment.
