Is it a superhero? Is a plane? No it’s Jetman !
Whilst I have parchuted and flown microlights, I have to say that Yves Rossy is a braver man than I – braver than most of us. The carbon-fibre jet-propelled craft, with a span of more than 2m (6ft 6in), is designed for speeds of 220 km/h (138 mph). It has been successfully tested, including a flight across the English Channel in September 2008.
