Of course! I move from Ft Worth to a tiny West Texas town, and miss the 787 out of Meacham, now I miss this! I do get to see B1's out of Abilene on occasion though.

This is very cool. I guess the next step is airplane hybrids? Use Jet-A to get to altitude then cruise on solar - hopefully at a slightly faster speed than 30 kts :) Lets hope for fair winds for the rest of the Solar Impulse journey.

Per DFW PR: go to Solar Impulse website www.solarimpulse.com and register for one of the Saturday time slots. You will be provided directions and parking instructions when you register.

it's sad to see the lack of publicity for such a great feat with solar-power.

Almost went last night but there was nothing PR wise available. There wasn't even a news story to announce when the plane would arrive, though, ironically the local news covered it's flight to PHX. Go figure.
