US Rocketman flies for charity


A so-called rocketman flew over and around a Colorado petrol station with a jet-pack strapped to his back to raise money for charity.

Eric Scott, completed the feat to raise money for a breast cancer awareness foundation.

Currently, the Go Fast-Jet Pack only holds enough fuel for about a 30-second flight but Scott and his team are working on one that can fly for up to an hour.
