GeneralWorld Inventor On Flyboard Steals Show At Bastille Day Celebrations July 14, 2019 0 By Staff Writer Facebook Twitter Google+ Email WhatsApp Sky News:– A French inventor armed with a rifle soared over the Champs-Elysees on a flyboard as part of France’s annual Bastille Day celebrations. President Emmanuel Macron oversaw the events on Sunday which showcased Europe’s defence co-operation. The display included over 4,000 members of the armed forces, 69 planes and 39 helicopters. But the biggest crowd-pleaser was former jet-skiing champion Franky Zapata, who rocketed through the air on a flyboard device he invented. US President Donald Trump had been a guest of honour at France’s Bastille Day parade in 2017. He was so impressed at the event two years ago that he ordered a military parade in Washington for the 4 July celebrations this year.
