Swiss (or Swish!) Jet Man!

Yves Rossy, the Swiss Jet Man.
Yves flys a deployable 3-meter wing, powered by dual jet engines, that is capable of reaching speeds of up to 100mph. He built it himself. Here you can see him perform a demonstration, in which he jumps from a plane and flies for approximately 4-minutes, landing by parachute.

Presumably when the fuel ran out.
