Solar Impulse “Across America” Landing at Dulles

Columbia, MD
Post #: 10
I was selected to be at the side of the runway when the Solar Impulse plane lands at Dulles Airport sometime after midnight tonight. I'm pretty excited and will be taking video and photos as well as tweeting live @Lanny.­

The plane will be on display at the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Center on Sunday. On Monday, the pilots will be meeting with Energy Secretary Moniz. The flight left Cincinnati this morning and pilot Bertrand Piccard is streaming video live at: http://live.solarimpu...­

Here is some other information from the web:

Washington Dulles International Airport will randomly select 50 interested individuals for a chance to view the landing of the Solar Impulse up close!

The Solar Impulse “Across America” bid is billed as the world’s first solar-powered aircraft to fly cross-continental. The journey began in San Francisco and continued with stops in Phoenix, Dallas/Ft. Worth and St. Louis. And soon, it will be on its way to Washington Dulles International Airport!

Solar Impulse, the world’s most advanced solar-powered airplane, will be on display on Sunday, June 16 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm outside the Udvar-Hazy Center.­

I stood on the adjacent runway when Solar Impulse landed at Dulles Airport this weekend. Here is the video I made.­
