The Rocketbelt Caper – a book by Paul Brown

Rbcover3D The amazing rocketbelt. The flying device was made famous by fictional heros like Buck Rogers and James Bond, but it was developed for real by the US Army in the 60s, and amateur rocketeers continue to build and fly their own rocketbelts today. My new book tells the full true story of the rocketbelt and the men who are building them, uncovers a bizarre murder mystery involving the device, and includes an instructive essay on building your own amazing flying machine. The book is The Rocketbelt Caper: A True Tale Of Invention, Obsession, And Murder by Paul Brown Link.
