Man with wings soars above the Alps

Man has always dreamed of flying through the air, akin to how birds fly. He did this first through hot air balloons, then through using small aircraft, and now this event. This is a man flying through the air, with wings on his back, and using the speed of a rocket engine to achieve upto 186 mph. Some other features:

# Yves Rossy is the world's first man to fly with jet fuel-powered wings
# He demonstrated his flight talent in Bex, Switzerland
# His jet turbines enabled him to achieve a speed of 186 mph
# He uses only his body to change position in the air
