French inventor Franky Zapata on Sunday succeeded in crossing the English Channel on a jet-powered hoverboard he designed, having abandoned a previous bid after failing to land on a refueling platform and falling into the sea. The Frenchman was seen waving to onlookers before landing safely in Saint Margaret's Bay, very close to Dover on Britain's southern coast, according to French TV images.
