Icarus moment befalls Bournemouth Airshow Jetman.<br />
<br />
This is the dramatic moment a James Bond-style jet man splashes down in the sea after his equipment caught ablaze during an air show.<br />
<br />
Dr Angelo Grubisic had just launched himself from the pier in Bournemouth Dorset, when one of the small jet engines strapped to his body failed.<br />
