'Fusion Man' tools across the Channel

Sep 26 2008 Published by under Sports

I've previously mentioned the exploits of Yves Rossy, aka "Fusion Man", a daredevil who had successfully built and tested a jet-powered wing.  Now, according to CNN, Rossy has taken a flight across the English Channel!  The 22-mile flight from Calais to Dover took less than 15 minutes to accomplish.  Information about Rossy and his wing can be found at his official website.

The National Geographic Channel will be airing a special on the flight tonight.
