I’m a rocket man!

And I think it’s gonna be a long long time...

Yves Rossy is successfully the first man to fly solo across the English Channel using a single jet-propelled wing (aka a jetpack). The 49 year-old man who calls himself the Fusionman, is a former fighter pilot for the Swiss Military. He crossed the 22 mile stretch of the Channel in just under 10 minutes. The stunt was aired live on the National Geographic Channel.

Thanks to James for the info.
