In 2008, leaping from a helicopter at an altitude of 8,200 feet over Calais, France, Yves Rossy crossed the English Channel with a single jet-powered wing strapped on his back, wearing only a helmet and a flight suit for protection. Reaching speeds of over 125 miles per hour, he made the 22-mile flight to England in 13 minutes.
