FusionMan and his jet powered flying wing

jet powered wing

Now is this cool or what? Yves “FusionMan” Rossy has built a $285,000 jet powered flying wing.

How does it work? he jumps out of a plane and starts the 4 jet engines that provide 200lb of thrust. He can then soar through the air at up to 186mph for up to six and a half minutes performing turns and 360 degree loops before deploying a parachute to land.

He recently crossed Lake Geneva and his next plan is a 22 mile crossing of the English Channel.
