Solar Impulse Photos & Images

Hi everyone,

As I promised on Friday, here are some photos Virginie took (merci!) from her iPhone at the Solar Impulse Unveiling. I’ve also included some Solar Impulse CATIA images.

If you have any Solar Impulse images to share, feel free to upload them in the comments section.

Enjoy!

  • Hi John, many thanks for your answer! Now that I have a name for the objects, I found this webpage building on the information you provided:
