Jet Man flies over the English Channel

Jet Man has done it. This morning, Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy made a giant leap for personal flight as he crossed the English Channel with a jet-propelled wing strapped to his back. This Iron Man-like stunt started with a leap from a plane flying 8000 feet over Calais, France, and 22 miles and 15 minutes later, he was parachuting safely to earth just beyond the White Cliffs of Dover in England. He's the first person to ever do such an insane thing. Amazing.

Who wants to be a jet man? C'mon, Jet Man, let us all try it!
