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!

    But the Chinese did everything, and invented everything first, just ask them.

    We've come a long way since 1993. Actually i meant to say 1984. Sorry i should have said; since 1965. Frack it; we haven't come very far (also space and time are an illusion just like my house and pension)

    The indoor hall can resemble a place from Rapture in BioShock. It has this Art deco aquatic fish tank quality over it. I can totally imagine whales and other giant sea monsters swimming by outside the glass canopy.

  • He's about 4000 years late to be the first, unless you're strict with the definition of jetpack. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...

    "But the rocket under the chair exploded, burning the mandarin and so angered the Emperor that he ordered a severe paddling for Wang."

    My face sums up this entire sentence.

    Yeah this https://upload.wikimedia.or... is one of my favorite images off all time.
