It's surely the ultimate way to beat the rush hour. The UK's first jetpack flight took off today piloted by David Mayman, an Australian ex-commercial pilot who flew 30 metres up into the sunshine.
After the four-minute flight, Mr Mayman was met with cheers and congratulations from the jetpack's designers and engineers.

He took off from the Royal Victoria terminal of the Emirates Air Line cable car over the Thames in east London and made two short trips back and forth towards the ExCel centre.
Having completed more than 400 test flights, Mr Mayman hopes to make an electric version of the jetpack commercially available for £196,000 with development starting in April next year after a £300,000 crowdfunding investment.
