ABU DHABI (APP) - Solar Impulse 2 landed in the UAE early on Tuesday, completing its epic journey to become the first sun-powered airplane to circle the globe without a drop of fuel.

The plane touched down at 04:05 (0005 GMT) in the capital Abu Dhabi after a more than 48 hour-long flight from Cairo, the final leg in its journey which began on March 9 last year, an AFP journalist reported.
