    Watch the two videos after the flying man over Rio. The two homebuilts are interesting but the R/C models at RAF Cosford are incredible. What workmanship.


    The Swiss pilot Yves Rossy, the "man-jet," once again exceeded the aviation barriers, completing a fabulous flight over Rio de Janeiro.
    This pioneering in the air wears clothes with wings and flies to 1,200 meters high.
    He is the only man to fly with a rigid wing equipped with four jet engines.
    He jumped out of a helicopter over Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, flying around the Corcovado, then went flying into the south of the city, bordering the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana and the Sugar Loaf, before pulling his parachute and land safely on the beach in front of the Copacabana Palace Hotel.
    Watch with full screen. Click the link below and turn on the sound.

    Didn't Sally Fields beat him to it years ago?
