Tomorrow, former French jetski champion, inventor and military reservist Franky Zapata will attempt to fly across the English Channel—on a jet propelled hoverboard. You may have seen Zapata's demonstration of the jet-powered 'Flyboard' (as he calls it) a few weeks ago when he flew across the Paris skyline above the parade below. But now Zapata is preparing to see just how far he can push the Flyboard by attempting to make the 20 minute trip from the French shore of the English Channel over to the UK. Zapata said the attempted channel-cross is "the realization of a dream," though he expects the flight will be far more difficult than the demonstration he gave on Bastille Day.
