batteries so they can take off when the sun is not out and fly at night. of course when the sun is up they propel the airplane. solar impulse 2 is going to fly to phoenix. this is the next leg on its attempt to become the first solar-powered airplane to fly around the world. this is a journey that started in abu dhabi in march last year. they ended up flying to japan, from japan to hawaii. they got stuck in hawaii for about nine months because of problems with the batteries. that's why we are still here in may. they've only got to the pacific coast. they flew from hawaii. that was two night, three day trip. because of the weather and because this airplane doesn't have much power, a lot is dependent how the wind are. right now i don't feel much in the way of wind. that's why they are taking off this morning because they have light winds.
5:01 am
the down side of solar is the top speed of this aircraft is only 47 miles per hour. what you are going to see when this plane takes off, it's similar to what we witness three years ago, it's going to be a short take-off. here is the swiss aviator explaining what he hopes this clean technology proves to the world. >> able to fly the stratosphere, stay in the air for six months and able to do communication works of salvation. different, more flexible, sustainable alternative than what they are offering today. >> back out here live where again we are waiting for solar impulse 2 to take off any minute for what will be a 16-hour trip to phoenix. compare that to jet travel which takes 90 minutes. when you're dealing with a solar
5:02 am
airplane and you don't get as much power as you like. it's only solar technology, it is going to be a long trip for the swiss aviator at the controls of solar impulse 2. we are waiting for it to take off any moment now. >> how big is the crew? >> there is only one pilot aboard. you've got 15 people you are looking at. on each of the wings there is a person with a stick. they are holding the wings up because there are no landing gear struts on the side of the wings. they are there to support the aircraft until it gets enough forward motion to take off. you have one pilot and they are
5:03 am
right now getting clearance from the tower. the propellers are starting to spin. they will fire up. what will be a very short take-off, slow but short. it's not going to go down the entire runway. it's like solar impulse one which we saw three years ago. that's what we'll see here. again for 16 hour journey. there you go. here we go. >> look at that. it's fascinating to watch. >> it's very quiet. the tail is up a little bit. and there they go. that's solar impulse 2 taking off from moffett field on its first leg in the united states and its quest to become the
5:04 am
first solar powered airplane to fly around the world. again, this is a 16-hour journey to phoenix. depending on the weather, they'll find another stop at some point to make across the united states from new mexico, kansas. and final destination in the u.s. will be new york city. what they would like to do. they came into the u.s. over the golden gate and would like to leave by the statue of liberty. make the cross trip over the atlantic to europe and back to abu dhabi where it started last year. >> that is over a full year. you were saying there are 17,000 solar panels on the wings of that plane? >> correct. you can't see it in the dark. that's one reason why the wings are so large because they have to be covered with the solar panels on the top.
5:05 am
they allow them to fly right now. this plane has flown for five days, five nights in japan to hawaii. they are trying to prove the benefits of solar technology and how this can be used in other applications and try what they want to do is get the world on fossil fuels. >> bob redell, thank you very much. it is up in the air. we'll continue to traffic it. 16-hour trip to phoenix. >> smooth and silent take-off. 5:05. other transportation news back on the ground now. prepare for what might be a traffic nightmare in the east bay. a live look at dublin this morning where traffic on interstate 580 and 680 are about to get worse. a popular road that helps drivers bypass gridlock is now going to be closed for months. talking about tassajara road.
