Photographer's Remark

The Eraole is a hybrid aircraft running largely on biofuel, with the solar cells on the tandem wings contributing only some 25 per cent of the power. It first flew on 21 May 2018. The aircraft will need to demonstrate a 70-hour endurance for a New York-Le Bourget flight which would take pilot Raphaël Dinelli twice as long as Lindbergh.
