    I think I've watched videos of this guys before.
    If it wasn't him then it was someone with a very simmilar jet-pack.

    A guy skydived across in a wing suit before - I think this is the first powered one though.

    When some one makes a jetpack that takes off from the ground and isn’t a wing with a rocket glued on it that lets you fall at a shallow angle I’ll be excited.

    Jetman is awesome.
    I think he was made a NatGeo hero or something.

    That is cool although I would love to see one take off from the ground and do it.

    He can climb in altitude with that thing. It's freaking sweet but I was under the impression that he would be taking off from the ground on this one. I'm pretty sure he's flown that far before, just not over water. Doing it over water after you've done it several times over land isn't too impressive.

    Still the jetpack freaking rocks.
