Solar Impulse 2, a Swiss-made airplane, flew over the iconic Statue of Liberty in New York before landing at the John F Kennedy International Airport on Saturday morning, June 11 (Sunday, PST).

The plane was supposed to head to the Big Apple last Monday night, June 6. It remained grounded though in Allentown, Pennsylvania since May 25 because of showers and thunderstorms in the area.

It finally left Lehigh Valley International Airport late Friday, June 10.

The solar airplane's voyage started in Abu Dhabi in March 2015. It has since made stops in Oman, Myanmar, China, and Japan.
