Note the lack of jets or any propulsion mechanism.

... that`s my way of saying "That`s not a jetpack, that`s a hanglider. Moron."

Also, what`s with the "hititng" in the description?

And if I was named Felix Baumgardner, I`d do suicidal stunts like that also. XD

BlackiPod, you have alot to learn. There is no set terminal velocity. Terminal velocity is the max speed a certain object will fall. You have to take into consideration size, because bigger objects generate more drag. But to answer your question, terminal velocity is 120 miles per hour for the average human.

Ummm.... Isn`t 220 mph terminal velocity? That is, anything falling for a certain amount of time gets that fast? So how is this special

I THOUGHT the title "SKYDIVING 22 miles across..." seemed a little odd... like there wasnt gonna be much jet packing....

Dat boy got cajones. Strewth!

Just goes to show that just because you`re born Austrian, you`re not automatically consigned to a life of pedophilia- you can climb your way out of the gutter by performing deeds of derring-do.

No power in that thing but still freaking awesome. He should have tried it in the red bull Flugtog if they hadn`t sponsored his efforts here.

So he pretty much jumped out of an airplane with an amped up hang glider attached to his back? Sweet.
