Jet-propelled hang-glider

    Did you guys see this?

    That must be good :biggrin:

    EDIT: Forgot I still can't post links...so, if you want to see a guy throw himself out of a plane with a rocket-type hang-glider strapped to his back, then go to bbc.co.uk and search for "Rocketman" in the BBC Audio and Video section for a short clip.

    Jet man has been around for a bit. There was a thread started about him in the GD area a while back. It is pretty friggin' cool.

    Oh, didn't know, sorry.

    Only discovered PF two days ago and I'm still sifting through the mass of information here :biggrin:

    I've never really taken to the idea of sky-diving, but this would definitely be right up my alley :smile:

    Any other interesting rocketman links you might have?

    Man, but that would be glorious! Given my luck, though, I'd end up with the exhaust nozzles misaligned and burn my ass off.

    Thanks Danger, I knew you'd be the key to me reaching 15 posts!!!


    Which means you guys must quickly head over to "General Engineering" where I'm going to start a new thread and then I must get off the internet because, unfortunately where I live, unlimited internet access doesn't exist and since discovering PF I'm going through this months' bandwidth allocation as if it's going out of fashion :smile:

    I don't have a lot of usefulness in life, but can usually be relied upon to build up a post count. :biggrin:
    As to your internet accessibility, we're pretty patient around here. It's not like we're going to forget you if you don't show up for a couple of weeks.
