Rossy Does It - Crosses Channel

It's the stuff of Greek mythology but now, more than two millenia after the Greeks wrote of him, we have a real, 21st Century Icarus - a man who straps on a wing and takes flight.

RocketMan Yves Rossy has successfully flown himself from France to the white cliffs of Dover. The former Swiss fighter jockey and Airbus pilot, strapped on his home-made jet wing and launched himself from a light aircraft over France before crossing the English Channel.

If you've never seen Rossy in action, you must check out this clip
