Aqua Lung Ocean Wings +

Flying under water. Reminiscent of the post I did with the under water wheelchair (Not the Paralympics), here’s the latest from the inventive French. I will do more environmental posts soon, I promise….


They glide downwards using the “wing” and ballast and use a gas bottle buoyancy device to get back to the surface; have a look at

And now, in complete contrast to the former dreamy sequence, here is the latest wing suit mayhem. Don’t get confused by the smoke – it’s not jet propulsion à la Yves (Jetman) Rossy - it’s 1) so one we can see their track better and 2) so they can see each other better as they manoeuvre in narrow spaces at very high speeds.
