    Jet Man Yves Rossy blasts across the sky in Spain

    http://www.adventureblog.org/entry/y...-sky-in-spain/

    Can you believe this crazy Swiss fellow!?! Four microjets pushed him four minutes at up to 115 mph riding under a flimsy little backpack wing.

    Click the image below to see him in action:


    - 4 miniature jet engines mounted under the wing
    - Current deployment from free fall jump out of an aircraft, though land take-off is planned soon
    - Steering takes place through body movements
    - The only control is engine speed
    - The only instrument is an acoustic altimeter
    - The flight ends with the deployment of a parachute

    Just call him "Fusion Man". And, yes, he is a former fighter jock.

    Trying to evade the killer propeller...

    Not really new news except perhaps for the location, good photos though.

        If he keeps on like that , He'll be targeted by a certain overzealous patriotic special force on the basis of mistaken identification :diablo: yo joee!!!!
