Boeing Patents First Solar Powered Plane That Can Fly Forever. It Can Replace Costly Satellites.

This plane stays aloft powered solely by sunlight. It is no more than a flying wing, and can maneuver without rudders, ailerons, tails, or other control surfaces. It flies without an onboard human pilot, but instead is controlled remotely from a ground station.

It can maintain a fixed position relative to the surface of the earth. Further, it can maintain flight at a fixed altitude above the surface of earth.

Therefore, the plane is an ideal fit for communication systems for use with radio signals, cell phone signals, microwave transmissions, television broadcasts, and even internet connections.
