Crossing the English Channel on a wing and a prayer!
Yves Rossy has done it again! The Swiss pilot/daredevil crossed the English Channel this morning (PR time)on his homemade carbon fiber wings and mini-jet engines.
Flying at almost 200 MPH and steering his wings with his body, Rossy flew from Pax de Calais, France to Dover, England in 12 minutes, running out of fuel as he passed the famous white cliffs. He then parachuted safely to the ground, completing this stunt.
Next for "Jet Man", a formation flight with 12 other pilots!
