Jetpack English Channel 

Yves “Fusion Man” Rossy crossed the English Channel last Friday, going from England to France with a jetpack strapped to his back.  Believe it or not, he is the first person to do this.  49 year old Rossy is a pilot who normally flies large airliners for a living.

The jetpack was powered by four kerosene burning jet turbines attached to a wing.
