Swiss man flies like a bird



Quote:

If you’re going to watch a man fly passed you with a rocket on his back, you might want to go to a mountain top about 2,000 meters high. You’ll probably need a helicopter to get there. Dozens of journalists were there, Ives Rossy’s sponsors, even his mother. Everyone waited with anticipation, Rossy an Airbus airline pilot who had been working on a jet pack prototype was making his official debut as Fusionman.

That's pretty cool. But I'm a little doubtful on how much actual 'flying' went on. That thing would likely be unstable as hell. My guess he didn't do much more that freefall from an airplane with a wing on his back.

Now, if he'd landed without the parachute, then I'd be impressed.

Looks like fun! I would give it a go. Done the sky diving and hang gliding doesn't look a whole lot different though the interview did say that he did a barrel roll and that would be cool.
