Solar Impulse 2, the world’s largest solar-powered plane, arrived in China’s southwestern Municipality of Chongqing early Tuesday morning.
The plane departed from Mandalay of Myanmar on Monday morning and arrived in the Jiangbei International Airport at 01:35.
The globe-trotting plane began its journey from Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, on March 9. Chongqing is the fifth leg of its world tour.
The wingspan of the aircraft is 72 meters (236 feet), which is wider than Boeing 747 jumbo jet, but it only weighs 2.3 tonnes.
Airspace restrictions were imposed by air traffic controllers when Solar Impulse 2 was landing in case the light aircraft was disturbed by turbulence from nearby airliners.
The plane will head for east China’s Nanjing City after a short stay in Chongqing.
After leaving Nanjing, the plane would embark on a five-day, five-night flight to Hawaii across the Pacific Ocean.
