Yesterday Yves Rossy, former fighter pilot and proud owner of the biggest cojones on the planet, strapped a wing and four jets to his back and jumped out of a plane. When the engines kicked in, he shot off at 186mph over the Rhone Valley, performing long, slow loops and a quick 360 roll "to impress the girls".
The story appears to be true as evidenced by the film of trhe event shown on i-pod.There have been earlier cases of similar fligfhts by men acrooss the Alps Mountains. Thinkgs are moving forward. When the first pilot flew across the Atlantic from Europe to America the story was not bnelieved in for some time.
