Watch: Man Flies Over Grand Canyon Wearing Jetpack


Swiss "Jetman" Yves Rossy completed an eight-minute flight along the Grand Canyon on Saturday, 200 feet above the canyon rim on the Hualapai reservation, the AP reports:

"A planned Friday flight before reporters was cancelled after Rossy determined it would be too challenging without any practice runs. The Federal Aviation Administration had given Rossy the green light less than an hour before he was scheduled to take flight."
