Cedarville University’s solar boat team got a behind-the-scenes look at one of the world’s most innovative vehicles when Solar Impulse 2, an experimental solar-powered aircraft, landed at Dayton International Airport on Saturday evening.

Although the plane was not made available for public viewing, the solar boat team was granted special access at the request of Dayton mayor Nan Whaley. In addition to getting a tour of the aircraft, the solar boat team was also able to meet the crew of Solar Impulse 2 and ask questions about the plane.
