I thought I'd share this impressive new way to get in the air.

Is it a Man ? Is it a plane ?

I wonder how the "pump-craft" follows the pack, probably just tows it along I guess...

Very clever  turning a jet ski around  adding a remote throttle  and some plumbing parts , the nozzles are not throttled ,mass shift controls it  and you "fall " and you get wet  COOL ;)

Like flying the thing isn't an expert manouver!

Kinda neat. Keep those feet tucked in. Bet the blast from the jets would smart somethng awful.


We could put a APM/IMUon one of those, right?

Sweet! Just like from Super Mario Sunshine!

It looks like a floating pump station just drags along behind you. You certainly wouldn't sneak up on anyone with that...

It would be really interesting to see a scaled  down version. An Unmanned JetLev. APM/IMU could do that I bet.

This looks like perfect mythbusters material.  Hey Guys, are you get'in this?
Comment by Greg Fletcher on February 10, 2011 at 8:51pm
John, It's not a myth. It is real. I saw this a few years back on a cable tv technology show. You can buy one if you have lots of extra money sitting around.

In early times, in bigger boats, people use to climb on the pole and see distant view with mono-cular.

I am not kidding, even in todays time this would help a lot, I think people can imagin, how.
