Jetman Yves Rossy isn't waiting for the promise of personal flight to come to him--he's jumping out of a plane after it! We head to Bex, Switzerland to catch up with Yves and his jet-powered carbon wing.

D68: Yes military. One I designed has machine guns and a rocket launcher. Highly maneuverable and presents a small target to anti-aircraft weaponry.

Has to be a Beautiful feeling. What a great invention and maybe sometime in the near future, we all will be able to enjoy it. Regarding Military use, I can't see that happening, to easy to get Shot down.
