A solar-powered plane has landed in Arizona a day after it took off from California on a round-the-world journey.

The plane was powered using only energy from the sun.

According to reports the Swiss-made Solar Impulse 2 had arrived in Goodyear, south-west of Phoenix, after a 16-hour trip from Mountain View.

Its pilot Andre Borschberg said that it was ‘a beautiful flight’ and "It was a special flight; not a long flight."
