Man Flies Over Grand Canyon Attached To Jet-Propelled Wing [VIDEO]

Jetman flies over Grand Canyon

We all wish we had the ability to fly like Superman, but this guy actually made it happen last weekend. Former Swiss fighter pilot Yves "Jetman" Rossy flew his jet-propelled wing across the Grand Canyon at speeds of over 190 mph.
Jetman jumped out of a helicopter at 8,000 feet over the Grand Canyon and stayed airborne for over eight minutes.

This isn't his first rodeo; he has flown over some beautiful sites. Jetman has winged over Lake Geneva and the English Channel, but came with high hopes for his first US flight. "My first flight in the U.S. is sure to be one of the most memorable experiences in my life, not only for the sheer beauty of the Grand Canyon but the honor to fly in sacred Native American lands," Jetman said.

I know what you're thinking, but we just couldn't risk our host Bradley's safety; however, the next closest thing is just around the corner. Stay tuned.
