Solar plane lands in New York


The first plane to fly across the USA just using solar power has landed in New York.

The “Solar Impulse” had to alter its plans to fly past the statue of liberty due to a tear in its wing.

The attempt began in San Francisco in May and stopped in Phoenix, Arizona, Dallas, Texas, St. Louis and Washington DC.

The designers now say they want to redesign the aircraft and attempt a round the world flight in 2015.
