I’ve heard rumors hat the Columbia cartel has placed orders for 1000 of these...
Way Cool ,thanks for the thread!
I don’t want to hijack your thread....it’s a beautiful video, but if you want to see the march of science in the last 30+ years..check out on YouTube “Gossamer Albatross” and “Gossamer Condor”
I want one!
Amazing!! Thanks for posting:)
I liked the backward flip ........
I liked the backward flip ........at 2:47
Totally in awe of the courage (or whatever) it takes to do that.
Just WOW !!!
I was spellbound ... and the soundtrack was perfect for it.
Instead of "Breitung," however, the wing should read:
ACME Jet Pack
All those guys, the Jetman (what a handsome dude) and the guys who fly the Alps in those bat suits (maybe you've seen the videos) -- what incredible courage and confidence and guts they have! They are willing to give their lives in the pursuit of flight technology, just like soldiers in war, and THAT is so commendable. Those guys are heros, in my book -- things that they pioneer, risking their LIVES in the doing, end up improving the future of the human race. Some people think dogs or dolphins or butterflies are the most beautiful creatures on the planet ... not me. Hands down, HUMANS are the loveliest things on earth. The video makes my heart soar, just like that guy is soaring over the Grand Canyon! PRAISE GOD!!
I mean, I'm an adrenalin junkie, okay, but ... man o manischevitz, flying that thing? I get an adrenalin rush just watching it -- practically jumping up and down her ein front of my computer, making so much noise that husband has to come down to investigage! He's the guy who said it should say "Acme." (Way too many WB cartoons under our belts! Then again .. that's not possible!!!)
Correction ... Brietling, not Breitung! *rolls eyes*
That is cool and crazy at the same time..
It´s in this month´s National Geographic. You want me to send it?
Pretty neat, alright.
