Jetman Yves Rossy fails in Africa-Europe flight attempt

Jetman Yves Rossy fails in Africa-Europe flight attempt

I followed this chap's exploits last year when he flew across the Channel and I was sorry to see that he has been unsuccessful this time in his attempt to cross from Africa to Europe. While I don't think we'll all be strapping rocket-powered wings on our backs and jetting around the world any time soon, M. Rossy is one of those irrepressible chaps who help to make the world a more interesting place. Like Bleriot 100 years ago, or Alcock & Brown, Lindbergh, and Earhart, they capture the imagination and epitomise mankind's quest to push boundaries and to come up with ever more inventive ways to travel and make the world a smaller place. Bonne chance to this fellow, I say, and may he put this episode behind him go on to ever greater successes.
