Yves Rossy (from Switzerland) aka the Jet-Man is the first man ever to be able to fly following Icare’s dream, with true wings and a jet-pack. Check out the flying clip :O

Yves Rossy was a former Swiss military pilot, designed and built a deployable 3-meter wing, holding kerosene fuel for 2 jet engines fixed to the tips and attached it to his back.
Rossy launched from an airplane and flew for 4 minutes, traveling over 100 mph, landing by parachute. Here’s another great video explaining jet-man technics.. Enjoy!
