I read this article over at MSN.com and was wondering would you ride one? Would you get on a solar powered plane? I think its a great idea for a car but a plane? I just don't know. My yard lights are solar powered and half the time they don't come on because of light interference from other sources. I'd have a really hard time getting past that mentally and trusting that the plane would be different.
What about you all? Would you ride one?

The aircraft's wingspan will be 60 metres wide - the same as an Airbus A340 - to provide the maximum surface area to be covered by solar panels.
There will only be room for one person on board - the rest of the space is being taken up by batteries.
