A few days back the concept of personal flight achieved a new milestone.

In a statement its inventors said that jetpack technology is becoming a reality and has the potential to change personal transport.

Strapped into his jetpack, off he goes.

Take off

Powered by two miniature jet turbines, the JB-9 jetpack is capable of vertical takeoff and landing. It is fueled by kerosene.

Flying around the Statue Of Liberty on a jetpack is the cool, new way to do it.
