A man straps on a jet suit from a boat in choppy seas and flies through the air to land on a military vessel. A video shows the wild adventure.

Take a look at the spectacular feat in this clip posted by TikTok user @futur3ology.


The poster of the video says the clip shows that "Gravity Industries worked with the Royal Marines to test the jet suit’s capability to support boarding operations."

"Pirates beware," says a viewer of the video.

"I believe it's a gravity pilot doing a demo," comments a user.

"Genuine question," asks another. "If the engine fails how does he not drown?"

It's certainly a good question. The technology appears to have important implications for fighting seafaring crimes. That is, if you can find the right hero to tackle the task.
