IT has been the stuff of science-fiction legend for generations, but the era of futuristic personal space-age travel may have finally dawned. After completing a gruelling seven-minute outside test flight, the longest ever by a jetpack, the worlds first commercial rocketman suit could be just months from hitting the shelves. Reaching death-defying altitudes of more than 100ft, the Martin Jetpacks flight last week brought 40 years of development near to a conclusion and the dreams of millions achingly close to reality. Although limited to speeds well below its 60mph capacity, the remotely controlled test, using a weighted dummy pilot called Jetson, smashed records for altitude and air-time. Daily Mail
