Remember the movie The Rocketeer? Well it just got real. The other day as I was flipping through the TV channels I came across this on the news. At a recent Switzerland air show, ‘Jet Man’ Yves Rossy gave an incredible flying display, using a tailor-made jet pack. The aviation enthusiast jumped from a helicopter and performed a series of aerial acrobatics above the Swiss Alps. Rossy then joined two jet planes in a synchronized flight. To synchronize their flight paths the jets reduced their speed to 137 miles per hour, which put their engines at a point close to stalling. Rossy’s previous aerial feats include flying the English Channel and looping the loop around a hot-air balloon.
This is what I want for christmas!
