Meet the ground crew of Solar Impulse 2

Solar Impulse 2 is currently performing test flights in preparation for the Round-The-World attempt that will take place in 2015. These test flights would not be possible without the ground crew, who 'catch' the plane during take-off and landing. The video below shows the ground crew at work during the third test flight of Solar Impulse 2.
