Remember the Swiss “Fusion Man” Yves Rossy who attempted to cross the English channel in his jet powered wing suit? Well, he made it. Rossy is the first person to ever fly between France and England with a jetpack strapped to his back. This historic flight took only 10 minutes as the “Fusion Man” flew at speeds of up to 120 MPH.
It took him at least five years to develop the jet-propelled device, which seems to have paid off in the long run, forever marking him in the history books of aviation. Congratulations to Mr. Rossy for his successful venture.
