Yves Rossy, better known as Jetman for reasons that will soon become clear, recently made an 8-minute flight down the length of the Grand Canyon. Rather him than me.
Rossy uses a custom-designed jetpack which essentially enables him to fly. After being dropped out of a helicopter hovering 8,000 feet above the ground, Jetman managed to reach speeds of 190-miles-an-hour.
This is Rossy’s first flight in the U.S., but he has previously soared across the sky in various other countries, even ditching into the sea off the coast of Morocco.
This is awesome to watch, but it’s not something I’d like to try for myself. Call me a pussy if you want, but I don’t care. I value having my feet firmly on the ground to much to try and fly like an eagle.
