World’s only Jetpack?
What about the one James Bond used?
Seems like there should be more floating around.
Jonny Quest had one, too.
I can remember them being used as stunts at football games too. There was a show awhile back that had the history of jetpacks. The Huey pretty much ended their funding since the main point was inserting people in places that were hard to get to during Viet Nam. The jet pack was a fun novelty, but it couldn’t carry a bunch of grunts and all their weapons and gear, repeatedly or as far, as the helicopter. The jetpacks weren’t able to carry as much weight and they were severely limited in distance.
Forgot that the best part of the show was my 17 year old daughter being in shock that something that seemed like sci-fi existed 50 years ago.
But this sucker has a 10 minute flight time and a top speed of 100 mph.
Max Speed: 124 knots forward,
30 knots sideward & 30 knots rearward
Flight Duration: 3 hrs
Crew (Vietnam): Pilot, Copilot, Crew Chief and Door Gunner
124 knts is over 142 mph.
