Camp4BeatDown

How can you express everything that you want to somebody you love, knowing that if you don’t, that might be the last opportunity that you have? That is a reality that we all face, but for BASE jumpers, the risk of death sometimes results in something amazing and unexpected – love.

This is the real story of a pure love between two friends in the face of risk and tragedy.

This has led to him being referred to in the press by various monikers, such as The Airman, Jetman, Rocketman, and Fusionman.so,a few pics here of him an a couple of fav vids…fer ur viewing pleasure today if ya decide to gander at his gadgets.We mark a new milestone in the chapter of human flight.

Rossy’s jet-powered wing

In 2008, Rossy made a flight over the Alps Mountain Range, reaching a top descent speed of 304 kilometres per hour (189 mph), and an average speed of 200 kilometres per hour (120 mph).

In November 2009, Rossy attempted a crossing of the Strait of Gibraltar, hoping to be the first person to fly between two continents using a jetpack. He leapt from a small plane about 1,950 m (6,500 ft) above Tangier in Morocco and headed in the direction of Atlanterra, Spain. The flight was expected to take about a quarter of an hour. Strong winds and cloud banks forced Rossy to ditch into the sea just three miles from the Spanish coast, where his support helicopter picked him up ten minutes later. He was flown to a hospital in Jerez and soon released unhurt. The Spanish Coast Guard retrieved the jetpack, which had a parachute and a float.

On 5 November 2010, Rossy flew a new version of his jet-powered flight system and successfully performed two aerial loops before landing via parachute. He had launched from a hot air balloon piloted by Brian Jones at 2,400 meters (7,900 feet).

Since 2007 one of his training sites is in Spain, in the private airfield Skydive Empuriabrava in Empuriabrava (Girona, Costa Brava).[8][9] On 7 May 2011, Rossy reportedly flew above the Grand Canyon in Arizona.

The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had classified his flight system as an aircraft. When it finally granted him a license, the FAA waived the normal 25 to 40 hours of flight testing time, and Rossy acted quickly to complete his flight. Reporters, who had been waiting nearby since the cancellation of the original scheduled flight—on the day before—were not informed. There were, therefore, no independent witnesses to document his flight

To infinity and beyond

Daredevil Swiss pilot Yves “Fusionman” Rossy shows off his birdman skills. His new book “Yves Rossy: homme volant” (flying man), recounts his flying exploits over the past ten years. Simon Bradley reports.

Jetman Grand Canyon Flight, Yves Rossy

“This is the most challenging place I could fly,” the Jetman, Yves Rossy, told reporters. Rossy’s flight was his first in the U.S. and potentially his most difficult. Previous over-water flights across the English Channel and Strait of Gibraltar provided the option of a water landing — an option Rossy chose when en-route weather reduced safety margins during the Gibraltar run. The canyon offered far fewer options for a safe landing in the event of an emergency and its sharp corners and steep walls increased the likelihood of turbulence.

Jetman Dubai : Young Feathers

‘ BirdMan is what i call him ‘

is quite a bit faster than flying my ultralight trike – i fly 28-65 miles an hour on my butterfly wing he flies 120+

Rossy developed and built a wing-suit system comprising a backpack equipped with semi-rigid aeroplane-type carbon-fiber wings—with a span of about 2.4 metres (7.9 ft)—powered by four Jet-Cat P200 jet engines, modified from large kerosene-fueled model aircraft engines. This has led to him being referred to in the press by various monikers, such as The Airman, Jetman, Rocketman, and Fusionman.[2]

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge Converge

Converge

lewkin-up

Photos are visual spaces where shapes and lines, objects, and people come together…

here is an example of how a buncha lines have to converge to become 2 points to have to grab ahold of to Maintain Control!.

high_adventure

light converges into shadow

light converges into shadow

This week, explore the ways lines and shapes can converge in interesting ways through photography.

You can take the theme in a literal or an abstract direction, as you see fit — from a photo of a byroad merging into a busy highway to an image of an airport terminal where people from all over the world form hectic, ephemeral communities.Have a splendid weekend everyone no matter how one converges

 one has to COnverge  all lines to keep it together

one has to COnverge all lines on both sides of reality to keep it together

an a buncha friends well, thay converge on dis’ cliff, to but only diverge into space seperately!

IN THE END LOL 🙂
