Jet Man to take on the English Channel

13 10 2008

Jet Man, Yves Rossy, jumps out of a plane with a wing strapped to his back. He is also equipped with jet engines to provide powered flight. Hence the name Jet Man, or, as he calls himself, FusionMan.

He recently did a successful flight around Switzerland, going far enough that he feels he is ready to take on the English Channel.

You can read about it here, or, more interestingly, watch the video of him flying around Switzerland.
