The BBC News said that a solar-powered aircraft is expected to land in Japan.

The aircraft will have landed by the time I post this diary.

The aircraft was manufactured in Swiss, which receive a financial support from private companies, individuals and the Swiss government.

The aircraft has longer wings than normal one because 17,000 solar panels are installed.

The experiment flight has stared from March, and it is improving the record.

Although this flight took off China and was suppose to land Hawaii, it will be landing Japan, since it didn't have enough power to fly due to the bad weather.

However, strangely, that news haven't made a big news in Japan.
