Pilot flies over English Channel with jetpack Answered
A Swiss pilot has crossed the English Chanel with a jet-powered wing. He started the trip by jumping out of a plane over Calais and landed with a parachute in Dover. All together, the whole flight lasted 10 minutes to make the 22 mile flight.
The 49-year-old flew on a plane to more than 8,200ft (2,500m), ignited jets on a wing on his back, and jumped out.
Mr Rossy had hoped to reach speeds of 125mph.
It felt "great, really great", said Mr Rossy: "I only have one word, thank you, to all the people who did it with me."
