Jet Boat Test Runs on Charlie Lake
Two turbine engine powered race boats do some testing on the lake. These boats normally race on river courses, so a nice calm lake is a piece of cake, but we're just doing a quick test of the setup before heading off to race.
Maximum speed is not the goal here, but both boats went just over 125 MPH on this day.

The man you're watching is fifty-one-year-old Yves Rossy, also called Jetman, for reasons that should be obvious. In 2006, he became the first person to fly with custom-made composite wings on his back powered by four small jet engines. This footage, shot Friday, November 5, 2010, is proof that he's now the first man to perform aerobatics and loop in the rig.
