Another daredevil readies milestone flight in Dominican Republic
Santo Domingo.- DT has learned that American daredevil Eric Scott, known as “rocket man” and “rocketeer,” is at the center of a project to develop one of the world’s first turbine-powered jet packs, at an undisclosed facility in the outskirts of Santo Domingo Dominican Republic’s capital.
The revelation comes just one day after Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner’s stunning free fall from the stratosphere to become the first person to break the sound barrier without a vehicle.
Although Scott’s performances in public events around the country have awed crowds, the flights were conducted using propellants, and not the high technology jet engine, the DT source said.
