After successfully crossing the English Channel with his high-tech jet pack, Fusion Man Yves Rossy decided to undertake an intercontinental flight (Africa to Europe), but things came to a crashing halt when he landed in the Straits of Gibraltar. Video after the break.

The journey – conducted at 130mph – had been expected to take less than 15 minutes. Fortunately, Mr Rossy was being followed throughout the attempt by a team of paramedics in a helicopter – just in case.
