“He flew right over me, just 20 or 30 feet above me. It was incredible. This guy has guts.”
Spectator Thor Seufer, a pilot for Northwest Airlines, on stuntman Eric Scott’s flight over the Arkansas River in a jetpack powered only by hair bleach. Scott, 45, flew over a 1,500-foot-wide, 1,000-foot-deep canyon for 21 seconds and hit speeds of 70 mph.
