Throughout the 10 days of the Air Show, the #Si2 hangar was open to the public, who had an opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of innovation and clean technologies thanks to an interactive exhibition. Visitors could also get right up close to the airplane, and have their photos taken sitting in a mock-up of the cockpit!

The founders and pilots of Solar Impulse, Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, were thrilled to have the chance to spread their pioneering message to such large and enthusiastic crowd of people. They took the stage personally to give a presentation about their aircraft, before answering numerous questions about the round-the-world flight, which now looms near. 

Solar Impulse takes this opportunity to offer its warmest congratulations to Colonel Ian Logan and his team of organisers at #Air14, who gave enormous pleasure to hundreds of thousands of spectators.
