Solar plane piloted André Borschberg should take off from Nagoya at 19:30 on Tuesday. Adverse weather conditions have prevented it.

The solar plane is stuck in Nagoya since June 2 because of the rainy season in Japan. It had taken off from Nanjing (Eastern China) toward Hawaii but had to give up to continue the flight due to impassable cloudy forehead.
