Jet Pack Flies Across 1,100-Foot-Deep Colo. Canyon
Canon city, Colo. (AP) A jet-pack pilot has flown across the 1,500-foot-wide, 1,100-foot-deep royal gorge in southern Colorado.
Go Fast Sports & Beverage, which sponsored the stunt, said Eric Scott of Jet Pack International took 21 seconds to cross the Royal Gorge at 75 mph on Monday.
Go Fast says Scott didn't use a parachute.
Jet Pack International developed the hydrogen-peroxide-powered jet pack for stunts, promotions and other events for Go Fast.
Both companies are based in Denver and were founded by entrepreneur Troy Widgery.
