Solar plane takes off in Myanmar and heads to China
The Solar Impulse plane has departed from Mandalay in Myanmar as part of its round-the-world flight.
It is on course to fly to Chongqing in China for a brief stop and then onto Nanjing in the east of the country.
If successful this will be the first time a solar-powered plane has ever flown around the globe
