Today is again a crossing day!The French pilot Stéphane Rousson is currently trying to cross the
English Channel with his muscular powered airship.
He started his adventure at 07h15GMT from Hythe (French coast)and
normally after 5hours of push-pull, he will arrive to Wissant (English
The distance is 45 km. He flies at 30 meters up to the sea.
Good luck Stéphane!
Unfortunately, Stéphane failed after 8 hours of push-pull. In cause, the wind was flowing in the wrong direction at only 10 miles of the arrival point! Apparently, he has to stop for a long time du to the hight costs of the project. Good luck for the next step.
