Jetman in the Grand Canyon

This past May, Swiss inventor and flyer Yves Rossy flew around the Grand Canyon using his flying rig, which looks a lot like a combination of the stubby-winged flying rig used by Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story and the jet-propulsion backpack in The Rocketeer. It's as close as anyone has come to flying like Superman. (One thing you may start wondering about as you watch this: How is he going to land?)
