Jetman!

Yves Rossy ,aka "Jetman", soared above the Grand Canyon at 190 MPH!! That is incredible! On Saturday, after the FAA cleared him for his flight, he jumped out of a helicopter at 8,000 feet strapped to his jet wing. After the eight minute flight Yves floated back to the ground by his parachute. 
I mean I have already seen the videos of him flying over the swiss alps and all, but this time he did it over the Grand Canyon.There must have been huge gusts of hot air giving the wing turbulence, which would have made it even harder to fly and a more daring challenge.  This guy is like the Evel Knievel of Jetpacks!
