>>>BORED WITH FLYING A PLANE? SKY DIVE NO LONGER GIVE YOU THAT RUSH? THIS GUY HAS THE SOLUTION. PROFESSIONAL AIRLINE PILOT EVE ROSSI, BETTER KNOWN AS THE JET MAN, HAS BEEN PROTECTING SELF-CONTAINED FLIGHT FOR FOUR YEARS. THIS WEEK HE WOWED THE CROWD AT THE AIR VENTURE SHOW IN OSHKOSH, WISCONSIN. CRUISING BESIDE A B-17. CHAD MYERS, CUE THE ELTON JOHN “ROCKET MAN” SONG FOR ME. THIS IS NUTS. >>IT IS FANTASTIC. FOUR 45 PSI JET PACKS ON HIS BODY, FORCING HIM DOWN THE GRO. TURNS ON THE JET. >>THEY’RE TELLING ME TO TELL YOU TO COME CLOSER TO ME. YOU CAN SPEAK IN MY MICROPHONE BECAUSE YOURS IS LOW. I’LL LEAN IN.>>HE’S GOT THIS THING STRAPPED TO HIS BACK. 180 POUNDS. HE WAKES 150. SIX FEET TALL. JUMPS OUT OF THE HELICOPTER. ALL OF A SUDDEN HE’S FLYING. HE NEEDS TO BE UP 6,500 FEET BECAUSE HE WANTS THE MOMENTUM. HE’S SKIING THIS THING. SWISH BACK AND FORTH. HE DOESN’T HAVE A RUDDER. NOTHING. ALL HE HAS IS HIS BODY TO PATROL IT. >>HOW, PRAY TELL, DOES HEE EAR.>>BOOM. THERE WE GO. WORKING MICROPHONES. ANYWAY, YOU WOULD DO THIS.>>I WOULD. >>THIS IS INCREDIBLE. WE HEARD ABOUT THIS GUY IN THE PAST PERFECTING THIS. >>YOU KNOW WHAT? IT’S ABOUT $100,000 TO DO THIS. HE OPPORTUDOESN’T THINK A LOT OE ARE GOING TO DO THIS. >>PER TRIP?>>TO BUILD THIS THING. GET ONE. IT LOOKS BAD. THAT’S GOOD. THAT’S WHAT’S SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN. HE’S SUPPOSED TO LAND LIKE THAT. THE NEXT THING HE’S GOING TO DO TO MAKE IT MUCH MORE AFFORDABLE FOR EVERYONE TO DO IT IS DO A GLIDER VERSION THAT WON’T HAVE JET PACKS. YOU’LL STILL GO UP IN A HELICOPTER. STILL JUMP OUT OF A HELICOPTER OROFF A BASE JUMP AND BE ABLE TO FLY DOWN FOR A WHILE. EIGHT TO TEN MINUTES WITH THE FUEL HE HAS GONE ALL THE WAY OVER THE ENGLISH CHANNEL WITH THIS THING. >>MAKE YOU A DEAL. YOU DO IT. I’LL BE WAITING ON THE GROUND

  1. can ugly women not run news shows or be weather women anymore. I like RT and that's one of the worst. you don't know whether to listen to the news report or crack one of.

  2. If I win the lottery, I will sponsor him to dress as Wile E. Coyote and fly one with ACME emblazoned across it.

  3. You know the Nazis wanted to do exactly what this guy just did.  Well, except they wanted to down that B-17.
