Human Jet

A Swiss airline pilot Yves Rossy is due to zoom over the White Cliffs of Dover and land in the history books at lunchtime today. Wearing a wing with four motors on his back attempting to become the first human jet to fly the Channel.

Mr Rossy, who calls himself Fusionman, plans to drop out of an aircraft high above Calais, ignite his jet engines and, using his body to steer like a bird, rocket across the Channel at speeds of up to 115mph (185km/h), hopefully reaching Dover in about 13 minutes.
