Iffy: Man Makes 'Historic' Jetpack Flight In China

July 15, 2015

This are two videos of jetpack hobbyist Nick Maycomber becoming the first person to fly a jetpack in China. Wait -- not a single other person has flown a jetpack in China? I find that hard to believe. Surely there's a Chinese farmer out there who built himself a jetpack and took off. Also, why is becoming the first person to use a jetpack in a particular country some kind of feat? Am I going to be applauded as a hero when I become the first person to fly a jetpack in my apartment and through the ceiling of my apartment and into my upstairs neighbor's apartment? Because I better be.

Hit the jump for the videos, then jump off your parent's roof with a Coke and Mentos powered jetpack and break both legs.

Thanks to n0nentity, who wants to be the first person to fly a jetpack into the sun. Not if I beat you to it!
