Yves Rossy is my new national hero: Swiss guy achieves dream of flight
Being able to fly is one of the most universal dreams out there. Who hasn't daydreamed about flying through the air, or awoken to the sound of your alarm going off disappointed that you can't really leap off your roof and fly to your friend's house? The freedom of being able to fly would be simply amazing.Watch video
Well, guess what? A crazy Swiss guy is doing it, and chances are it looks way, way too scary for the likes of you and me. Yves Rossy, a former jet and commercial airline pilot, has always wanted to fly. So he went ahead and built himself a set of wings with an engine on the back, allowing him to fly horizontally for over four minutes after tossing himself out of a plane. I've got to admit it looks like a blast, I'd just be really embarrassed to have the pee streaming down my leg flying out behind me for that far. Check a video of Yves in action after the jump.
