Hey David Blaine, eat my shorts! Fusionman, otherwise known as Yves Rossy, flew the English Channel today as a real-life rocketman. Fusionman was dropped from a plane, lit the jets and flew 22 miles at speeds of up to 125 mph before landing softly.
It took Fusionman about ten minutes, the same amount of fuel he carried on board with him. Yves Rossy had a nice flight that was delayed due to high winds, but departed on time today. Fusionman even looped his enthralled audience as a little show of his flying ability.
