Man builds personal jet-wings and flies for four minutes horizontally at 1600m altitude

What a crazy but interesting project. I would hate to see what would happen if one of the jet engines cut out. Yves Rossy set out to build a personal jet that he could strap onto his back. If this site is real, it appears that he succeeded.

According to his website: “After many trials tests, the first horizontal flight lasted 4 minutes on Jun 24 th at 7:30pm making this the first-ever jet powered flying-man to fly worldwide.”
