Rocketman Breaks Jetpack Record In Death-Defying Stunt from Reggie Paulk
The Royal Gorge is a deep gash in the earth. It's sheer rock walls fall almost vertically over 1000 feet to the river below. Spanning the chasm is the Royal Gorge Bridge. Built in the 1920's this suspension bridge is the world's highest suspension bridge. Believe me, no matter how unafraid of heights you are, peering through the wooden slats to the river far below gives you the heeby jeebies. Jet-pack pilot Eric Scott of GoFast Energy Drinks flew 1500 feet across the canyon today to break the record for longest flight with a jet pack. To put it into perspective, the flight took him 24 seconds to complete--He had less than six seconds of fuel remaining when he touched down on the other side. Here's a video I made of the adventure:

Yanks Air Museum PB4Y Arrives in Chino from Warbirds Online by Ryan Keough
The latest coming in from the news hounds over at WIX (Warbird Information Exchange) involves the ferry flight of Consolidated PB4Y-2 Privateer (Bu No 66300) from Greybull, WY to Chino, CA for delivery to its new home at Yanks Air Museum in Chino. The aircraft formerly served with Hawkins & Powers in Greybull as a fire bomber as Tanker 124. The aircraft was one of a fleet of vintage fire bombers that were auctioned off in late 2005. It’s great news that the former H&P Privateers are finding new homes and are not meeting the fate of the scrapper. Though Tanker 124 will be a long-term restoration to bring it back to wartime condition, certainly the skilled craftspeople at Yanks are up for the challenge.
