Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy (no relation) has been toiling away at backpack jetflight for years now. His accomplishments are many: He’s flown across the English Channel, over the Alps, and just yesterday ducked out of a hot-air balloon near Lake Geneva and completed two aerial lops before parachuting back to terra firma.
Rossy is now waiting on the powers that be to grant him permission to self-jettison across the Grand Canyon. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is looking askance at the daredevil, who’s rumored to be a flight risk.
