DAYTON, Ohio AP — A solar-powered airplane's planned flight from Ohio to Pennsylvania has been postponed.

Officials say that during a failure of the cabinet of the Solar Impulse's mobile hangar, the plane was briefly touched by the hangar's fabric.

The globe-circling voyage began in March from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, and made stops in Oman, Myanmar, China and Japan.
