Man Crosses English Channel With Jetpack

September 26, 2008


Yves "Fusion Man" Rossey successfully crossed the English Channel with a jetpack today. This is one small pew for man, one giant PEW PEW PEW for mankind.

Rossy, a pilot who normally flies an Airbus airliner, crossed the 22 miles between Calais and Dover at speeds of up to 120 mph in 13 minutes, his spokesman said.

Awesome. And as a guy who has made his girlfriend wear a jetpack during sex, I've got to tell you: don't do it from behind.

Hit the jump for a video.

Thanks to Phylth, Pat, Popadopolis, and Kat, all of whom have crossed the Discovery Channel on Lay-Z-Boys.
