I am sure most have seen/heard of Yves Rossy, the Swiss Jet Man.
Well now he's back in the headlines crossing the English Channel looking more like Buzz Lightyear than anything esle.
I thought this a great story to share, since I am sure most of us here have yerned for exactly this type of freedom, or we wouldn't be involved in this hobby.
This amazing guy flys Airbus 300s for a living and has flown for the Swiss airforce in Mirages.
Now he straps on a pair of turbines which look alot like those in the R/C world, and flys over the Alps.
..The ultimate in manned flight!
