KARACHI–A Swiss-made solar-powered aircraft on its historic round-the-world trip has entered Pakistani airspace Tuesday during its second leg of the circumnavigating journey from Oman’s Muscat to India’s Ahmedabad.
Pilot Bertrand Piccard was at the controls of the aircraft, which has the wing span larger than a Boeing 747 jumbo jet.
He is accompanied by fellow pilot Andr Borschberg, who founded the company that built the plane.
On Monday, the aircraft took off from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
It is to make a number of layovers during its 35,000-kilometer (21,700-mile) journey.
