Solar-powered aircraft completes cross-country flight

NEW YORK (PIX11) — A solar-powered aircraft touched down at JFK in completion of the final leg of a history-making cross-country flight.

The solar impulse aircraft started its journey in California in early May, and official landed at JFK on Saturday night.

The aircraft was scheduled to arrive in New York on Sunday morning, after doing a fly-by the Statue of Liberty. However, a tear was discovered on the left wing, forcing officials to scrap the fly-by.

The plane is powered by some 11,000 solar cells on its over-sized wings.

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    superb blog!
