Inventor On Flyboard Steals Show At Bastille Day Celebrations

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.
