We've been reporting on David Mayman and Jetpack Aviation for some years now, and this weekend he was in Sydney with his roaring jet turbine JB-10 jetpack to take another stab at a flight he tried to perform 10 years ago. We were privileged to watch this stunning flight in person.

Mayman's previous attempt, wearing a hydrogen peroxide rocket belt, saw him run out of juice and end up crashing into the water. This weekend's event, as well as being a chance for Mayman to redeem himself in his home city, was done to promote a new documentary called Own the Sky, coming soon to international release.

Check out the flight in the following video, and stay tuned for more details in the coming days.

Clone and update the Williams Aerospace X-JET and there would be no problem with having enough runtime to fly around the Sydney Opera House 3 or 4 or more times.

Simply amazing!!! And to think that you can get that much lift just by blowing a gas downwards!!!
