Flying Frenchman Crosses English Channel By Hoverboard
French inventor Franky Zapata has crossed the English Channel on a jet-powered hoverboard.
Franky Zapata's hoverboard is powered by kerosene which he carries in a backpack.
He took off from Sangatte near Calais and reached Dover in 22 minutes - after travelling about 36 kilometres (22 miles) and stopping halfway to refuel.
He told reporters during a press conference that he had recorded a top speed of 202 kilometres per hour (125 mph) during the crossing.
His company is also awaiting authorisation from French authorities to test a flying car. August 4, 2019
