    Cool: One-man stealth attack glider.

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,352477,00.html

    It weighs only 30 pounds and can be fully weaponized for assault and rescue. It has a 6-foot jet-wing that is steered with handheld rotary controls connected to its rudder. And it can hide more than 100 pounds of combat gear in a built-in compartment.


    Video of it in action here.

    Personally, this whole contraption reminds me of my childhood:

    COBRA had it first!

          How much does the thing cost? I'll start saving today, maybe when i'm 70 I'll be able to afford it!

            Very much this.

            However I sure as hell don't want to fly the 'fighter' version. One stray bullet and you're gone. At least in a normal fighter plane the plane gives you an illusion of safety...
            ...I'm meant to put something here?

                I would not go down the Fox and Hounds (in Greenwich) on a Saturday in that - they'd take the piss.

                /EDIT OK, I admit it, really cool otherwise. ...

                  That jet-man thing is just the coolest thing in the world.
