Yves Rossy – Jet Pack Man

This is SO SO cool.  This is what every little boy dreams of doing, to fly like their favourite super hero.  Yves is a pilot for Swiss Air and he has built his own carbon fibre wing with 4 small jet engines attached, which travels at 300km/h.  There is a lot of links via YouTube, the one here gives footage from a camera attached to the wing itself and was prior to his crossing of the English Channel.  Two days ago he failed on his continental crossing when he was flying across the Straits of Gibraltar.  What an experience!
