Bleriot vs Rossy

In 1909 Louis Bleriot flew across the channel in an aeroplane, inspiring a generation and proving that air travel was a real possibility. Within five years the first commercial air service was up and running. 

Yesterday Yves Rossy flew across the channel with a jet-powered wing, inspiring a generation and proving that personal jet travel is surely imminent. I expect my jet-pack within five years.
