French Inventor Flies Across English Channel on Hoverboard

It's a bird, it's a plane! No, it's French inventor Franky Zapata, who on Sunday successfully flew from France to England on an airborne flyboard, or hoverboard. Looking like a superhero, Zapata successfully completed the famed 22-mile journey in just 22 minutes Sunday morning, reaching speeds of up to 110 mph. Propelled by a power pack full of kerosene, Zapata set off from Sangatte in France's Pas de Calais region and landed in St. Margaret's Bay, beyond the white cliffs of Dover, in southeast England. He stopped only once, on the British side, to refuel his futuristic invention from a boat in the choppy waters. See it below
