World solar flight to make stopover in Myanmar next month

YANGON, Feb. 25 (Xinhua) — The first around-the-world solar flight, Solar Impulse 2 (Si2), is expected to make a stopover in Mandalay, the second largest city of Myanmar on March 10, official media reported Wednesday.

Scheduled to stay for three day at Mandalay International Airport, it will be the 4th stopover of Si2 after taking off from Adu Dhabi of the United Arab Emirates in early March, said the Global New Light of Myanmar, quoting a pre-arrival press conference on the flight on Tuesday.

With the joint efforts of the government and Swiss Embassy, the solar flight to Myanmar will help inspire energy innovation in Myanmar, the report said.

During the visit, around 1,000 students from surrounding universities will have the chance to meet the pilots of the aircraft and learn about the plane and renewable energy.

A team of Swiss technicians and scientists worked together to design the solar-powered plane.
Myanmar is the only southeast Asian stop among the planned landings in China, the United States and southern Europe or northern Africa, the report added.
