Ok, I have to say .. holy crap this is awesome!
Former fighter pilot reaches 186 miles an hour during first public flight
Rossy, 48, made his first public flight with his self-made flying contraption in front of the world press Wednesday, after five years of training and many more years of dreaming.
There are many things from the movies I always hoped would become a reality in life. A rocket pack was one of them. Seriously, how cool is it to think about? Rocketeer, while being a Disney B-movie, was completely awesome in ideas. Not to mention to STILL see things like this in comic books and movies. Iron Man, while not really a rocket pack, only perpetuated the dream.
Killer. That's what I say. Can I have one?
