Jet-man zooms into record books

Yves Rossy – also known as Fusionman – flew in a plane to 3,000m, lit the jets on his homemade wing, then leapt out.

He went soaring across the sky at speeds of more than 200km per hour to make the 35.4 km journey from Calais to Dover in less than 10 minutes.

Bad weather had cancelled two earlier attempts, so it was third time lucky.
