Video: Whoa! Man Hovers Over Lake Hopatcong
He doesn't have super powers. But he might have $100,000 to burn.
Steve Ellis couldn't believe it.
As the regional superintendent of the state's northern parks watched the video, his eyes widened.
"Now I've seen it all," Ellis said.
What did he see? A man hovering above Lake Hopatcong.
Well, not exactly.
The man was using a water-powered jet pack to propel himself over and around the lake, causing boaters to crane their necks at the spectacle.
A company that manufactures such equipment, MS Watersports GmbH, calls its product the JetLev Flyer. The machine—powered by a 250-horsepower, four-stroke engine—costs $99,500, according to the company's website.
