Solar Plane Makes Dramatic Landing in NYC to End Cross-Country Flight

 The plane, called Solar Impulse, touched down here at John F. Kennedy International Airport at 11:09 p.m. EDT, after fabric on the aircraft's left wing suffered an 8-foot-long (2.5 meters) tear, according to company officials.

While flight controllers said neither the pilot nor the plane were in danger, the decision was made to land several hours early. Solar Impulse was originally scheduled to land at around 2 a.m. EDT on Sunday (July 7), after roughly 21 hours in air, and after flying over several iconic New York City landmarks.
