A Swiss man has become the first man to fly across the English Channel, using nothing except a homemade jet-propelled wing, earning him the nickname “The Human Jet”.
Yves Rossy flew 22 miles from France to England in 13 minutes. He leapt from a plane a mile and a half from the ground and fired up his jets. He managed to get across to England without any problems and parachuted into a field beyond the famous white cliffs of Dover.
