Jetpacks given air
NEW Zealand jetpack maker Martin Aircraft will display its wares to the US military in what it claims is a major step into the North American market. Its shares soared 6.67 per cent to 72 cents. Three manned jetpacks, three unmanned jetpacks and a simulator will be sent in a package to be presented to various agencies. They will be pitched toward uses including search and rescue, security, police, ambulance, fire and natural disaster recovery.
