Swiss Rocketman

Yves Rossy

The BBC is running a video of Yves Rossy, a Swiss man who jumped from a plane and then flew using his homemade jet-propelled glider. The image above shows a previous version of the glider, which only has two jet engines. The model flown this week used four. Mr. Rossy, has been gathering fame on the web for some time, and this stunt will no doubt be circulating for some time. Once he produces a commercial product, I will stop whinging that the future is not here yet.
