Daredevil “jetmen” jumped out of a plane with small jet engines strapped to their backs for a stunt flight over the dramatic scenery of Zhangjiajie in China’s central province of Hunan. For their flight on November 14, 2019, they used carbon fibre wings with attached jetpacks to zip around at speeds up to 400kp/h (250mph). The demonstration was part of Expo 2020 Dubai’s “Mission: Human Flight” programme, which aims to develop equipment that ultimately allows “fully autonomous human flight”.
