"Solar impulse" pit stop in cincinnati
 
Caught this aircraft last evening at Cincinnati Municipal Airport when it made a pit stop on its "Across the USA" flight. It came in from St. Louis, Missouri on its way to Washington DC and then on to New York. Powered entirely by wing mounted solar cells, it has the wingspan of a Airbus A340. Ceiling is 10,000 ft and max speed is 50 knots.
