Flying humans

It’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s Jetman! Yves Rossy (of Switzerland), also known as the Jetman, and Vince Reffet (of France) flew over Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Rossy has built a flying suit with 4 jet engines and can fly at speeds of 300 km per hour (185 miles per hour). Reffet is famous for his BASE jump off the top of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, last year when he had taken a leap from a height of 2,716 ft (828 m). BASE stands for Building, Antenna, Span (bridges), and Earth (cliffs).  You can watch a video about the Jetman here.
