Jetman Yves Rossy isn't waiting for the promise of personal flight to come to him--he's jumping out of a plane after it! We head to Bex, Switzerland to catch up with Yves and his jet-powered carbon wing.

      I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from: ( http://tinyurl.com/TopBargains )

      Dear Friends - interesting - for Swiss people that's even an "old one"... but your report kind "sucks"... At the beginning you say: "We are in Bex, in the South of Switzerland." - Wrong! Bex is in the WEST of Switzerland. Yves Rossy's original mother tongue is French. French is spoken in the West of Switzerland... sometimes I wish you Guys would do your research before you send out "faux" information.
        Sir

        You're both right! Bex is located in "southwest" Switzerland

      Nice, but more impressive was about 50 years ago when they invented the jet back pack I think (NASA). The pilot would take off and landed on his feet .

      I think Buzz Lightyear said it best; "this isn't flying, it's falling...with style!".
