Rossy jumped out of a plane over Tangier in Morocco and headed across the Atlantic Ocean towards Tarifa, Spain, some 23 miles away. The jet-powered flight was to be the first intercontinental Jetpack flight and would have been a mile further than his historic crossing of the English Channel last year. Turbulence in the clouds, which were much heavier than expected, posed a serious problem for Jetman, who flies with no instruments and has to rely on feel. He attempted to fly over the clouds, but was too slow and upon emerging from the cloud cover realized he was flying at 300 km/h (186 mph) at an altitude of just 850m (2,788 feet). He decided to abandon the flight and landed safely in the water.
