Is there any place you'd rather be?

Good work! Getting back to reality, I'm wondering if that motorized fan on the guy's back would propel him forward fast enough to generate lift in that canopy. If so, he could theoretically stay up as long as he has fuel for the motor and/or finds some good thermals. However, I bet he can't see that rainbow.

Paragliding is quite a sport for the brave at heart. Not having a fear of heights is a prerequisite. There is a guy flying around here all the time in one.
