Today, Swiss daredevil Yves Rossy will jump out of an airplane, with a jet-powered wing strapped to his back. He’s attempting to be the first person in history to cross the English Channel in the air. Or the first to jet directly to the bottom.
His route will take him from France to England, on the same route French aviator Louis Bleriot used to become the first to fly the Channel 99 years ago. On-board cameras will capture Rossy’s stunt.
