Jetman – Yves Rossy

Posted: December 4, 2009 in Random

Did you ever want fly like a superhero and skyrocket through the sky? Well, Yves Rossy is the first man to have accomplished that dream of being able to fly through the sky on horizontal level. Also known as Jetman, he used his  jet-powered fixed wing strapped to his back to achieve sustained human flight. He made many successful flights on his jet-powered wings, but last month, on November 25th, 2009 he tired to make an intercontinental flight between Europe and Africa. He took off from Morocco, and was was heading for Spain over the Strait of Gibraltar when he lost control and was found swimming in the Atlantic ocean with his parachute. He is an amazing man and talented man. Also, he will try another attempt to try to complete the intercontinental flight.
