Yves Rossy. To Infinity And Beyond. The Real Buzz Lightyear.

Hi,

.

Something to take your breath away.

.

This post concerns an innovative Swiss aviator, and former army pilot, named Yves Rossy.

.

The daring extreme sportsman has long had a wish to fly over the grand Canyon in the USA.

Not so hard to do you might well say, but this man wanted to do it while wearing his amazing jet-propelled wing suit.
.
He has broken many flying records up until now, and was the first man to fly with a rocket on his back.
Here is film of him previously jumping from a hot air balloon over Lake Geneva at a height of well over 2,000 metres
He also loops the loop.
.

.

This is film of him wearing his jet-suit which was said to have been developed at a cost of about $300,000.
He can reach speeds of around 180mph.
The suit is said to have been designed to include four German built model aircraft engines which are incorporated into the wing-suit.
.

.

About four days ago he called off an attempt to cross the Grand Canyon because it did not feel right to him.

.

.

But now he has lived his unusual dream.

He has successfully flown the Grand Canyon.

.

.
I think he is stunningly brave and pioneering.
Obviously the sort of man who will be busy setting some other impossible record soon.
.

But remember folks…..these stunts are dangerous and should not be attempted by other people in their own homes!!!!!!!
