A solar-powered airplane has landed in New York City on the latest leg of its globe-circling voyage.
The Swiss-made Solar Impulse 2 soared over the Statue of Liberty and flew into New York City, before landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport early Saturday morning. It had left Lehigh Valley International Airport in Pennsylvania late Friday.
The plane originally was scheduled to head to the Big Apple Monday night but showers and thunderstorms moving through the area caused it to be grounded. The plane had been in Allentown since May 25.
The voyage began March 2015 from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Stops were made in Oman, Myanmar, China and Japan.
