Swiss Flyer

Look at Fusion Man!

That's the Swiss pilot Yves Rossy who flies using his own wings, jet powered ones of course!

Dressed in a white flight suit, wearing a white helmet and strapped to his black device, Rossy was dropped from an airplane 2,348 meters above the Earth. He first unfolded the rigid, eight-foot wings strapped to his back, then fired up four tiny jet engines originally intended to power model aircraft.

Red Bull does give you wing ... it is a European product, yes?
