The experimental aircraft landed at Lehigh Valley International Airport in Allentown, Pennsylvania at about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday having taken off from Dayton International Airport in Ohio just after 4 a.m.

The aircraft traveled from Tulsa International Airport to Dayton last weekend.

Solar Impulse 2 is expected to make at least one more stop in the United States, in New York,  before crossing the Atlantic Ocean to Europe or northern Africa.

The epic, history-making voyage began in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, in March 2015, and the solar-powered craft and two pilots have made stops in Oman, Myanmar, China, Japan and various points in the US since then.
