Solar plane makes record flight

The latest flight was conducted at the US Army's Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona. The Zephyr flew non-stop for 82 hours, 37 minutes.

That time beats the current official world record for unmanned flight set by the US robot plane Global Hawk - of 30 hours, 24 minutes - and even Zephyr's own previous best of 54 hours achieved last year.
