Mountain View, California, Mar 29:  A solar-powered plane that has wowed aviation fans in Europe is set to travel across the United States with stops in Phoenix, Dallas, Washington, D.C., and New York, the plane's Swiss creators said.



Solar Impulse, considered the world's most advanced solar-powered plane, is expected to be ready to leave from NASA Ames Research Center in California on May 1, although the actual departure will depend on the weather.
   
Solar Impulse plans to reach New York's Kennedy Airport in early July -- without using a drop of fuel, its creators said.
