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.

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.
