Solar Impulse lands in Nanjing, China

The solar powered fuel-free Solar Impulse has landed in Nanjing, China after leg 6 of its journey around the world.

The last leg from Chongqing (China) to Nanjing China measuring 1,241 km took the craft 17 hours and 22 minutes to complete.

Already, the Solar Impulse has set two world records for manned solar-powered flight on its journey so far:

The first was for the longest distance covered on a single trip - that of 1,468km between Muscat, Oman, and Ahmedabad, India.

The second was for a ground speed of 117 knots (216km/h; 135mph), which was achieved during the leg into Mandalay, Myanmar, from Varanasi, India.
