It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Jetman

What we need today is a superhero.  Thus, I give you Jetman.

Fly385_404109pSwiss adventurer Yves Rossy flew from England to France Friday
propelled by a jetpack strapped to his back — the first person to
cross the English Channel in such a way.

Rossy, a pilot who normally flies an Airbus airliner, crossed the 22
miles between Calais and Dover at speeds of up to 120 mph in 13
minutes, his spokesman said.
