外文标题：Solar Impulse lands in China after 22-hour flight from Myanmar
SHANGHAI: Solar Impulse 2 landed early on Tuesday in China, the world’s biggest carbon emitter, as it completed the fifth leg of its landmark circumnavigation of the globe powered solely by the sun.
With pilot Bertrand Piccard at the controls, the revolutionary plane landed in Chongqing airport at 1:35am (local time) after a 22-and-a-half hour flight from Myanmar, its vast wingspan lit up by rows of led lights.
The plane had been expected to make just a brief stop in the southwestern city and quickly travel on to Nanjing, about 270 kilometres from Shanghai, but that has been delayed due to weather and safety concerns, with the team now expecting to stay a few days waiting for better conditions for the trip east.
“We are tired but we are still very, very happy to be in Chongqing,” said mission engineer Michael Anger on the project’s website.
“In China it was demanding, this flight, especially for Bertrand but also for the team preparing two flights in a row and then this afternoon cancelling the second flight due to bad weather in Nanjing.”
