(KTVI) -  FOX 2 cameras caught a cool shot overnight as the Solar Impulse landed at Lambert Airport.

The world's most advanced solar-powered airplane took off from Dallas Fort-Worth airport early Monday morning and landed in St. Louis around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

That completed the third leg of its record-setting flight across America.  The plane will be store in its own inflatable hangar at Lambert since the hangar it was supposed to use was damaged during Friday's storms.

From here, the Solar Impulse will continue onto Washington, D.C. then on to New York.

Public Viewing

The first public viewing is scheduled on Thursday, June 6, from 9 a.m. to noon, and a second viewing session will be offered on Friday, June 7, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Anyone wishing to view the plane must register at http://solarimpulseatstlouisonthursday.eventbrite.com/ for Thursday and http://solarimpulseatstlouisonfriday.eventbrite.com/ for Friday.

The Yolos Mexican food truck will have food available for purchase on Thursday. Depending on the length of stay in St Louis, which is weather dependent, additional viewings may be scheduled.
