Icarus Redeemed - Swiss Jetman

06/21/2007 2:42 PM

Did this give any of you fellow CR4'ers the same feeling of "Hey Gods of Olympus, we're up here now!" triumphalism of engineering and science? Or am I just being seduced by the canned heat tunes in concert with the breathtaking video?

That's really great. I can't believe he didn't break both his legs on that landing. That took a lot of skill to land like that with that tiny parachute and all that weight.

If you didn't have to launch from an airplane, this could really cut your commute time to and from work.

Yeh, but one hell of a struggle as you all try to get through the door!
