Jet Pack Speed Record Set Answered

Picture of
Over in Scotland, some crazy fellow has just set a new speed record for the jet pack at 61 mph. The official speed reading was done by some cops with speed guns apparently, although I'm sure the video evidence also helps.

There's a guy by the name of Yves Rossy who made an actuall fuel powered one. It had a range of I think about 20 miles, and he crossed the english channel on it. I saw this in popular science, or maybe it was popular mech. anyway, I think that although this is coo, Yves went like 120 mph.
