Sept. 25, 2008: Yves Rossy of Switzerland heads to a press conference after his jet-powered solo flight across the English Channel was postponed in Dover, England. The adventurer canceled plans to cross the Channel strapped to a homemade jet-propelled wing after clouds rolled in over the cliffs of Dover and hampered visibility. Rossy said the flight would be rescheduled to Friday, when the weather is expected to improve.
