Jetpack Story Fools Fox News

The Martin Jetpack is marketed as "the most advanced and innovative aircraft man has ever dreamed about." Fox News recently reported that the Los Angeles Police Department ordered 10,000 of these jet packs at a price of $100,000 apiece. What Fox News failed to consider was that added up to $1 billion, and that there are only two Martin Jetpacks currently in existence.
