Up in the Air, Junior Birdman!

I haven't read this yet or anything, but it's certainly piqued my interest. As a big fan of all things that allow we mere mortals to soar with the birds, The Rocketbelt Caper sounds like a great story.

From the cover:
'We finished the rocketbelt, and from then on there was murder, kidnapping, and all kinds of other stuff.'

James Bond meets the Coen Brothers in this riveting true story of three friends and their quest to build a Buck Rogers-style flying machine - the amazing Rocketbelt 2000. Perhaps the least incredible thing about their tale is that they succeeded in building and flying their futuristic device. But their obsession with the rocketbelt shattered their friendship and set in motion an astonishing chain of events involving theft, deception, violent assault, a bizarre kidnapping, a ten million dollar lawsuit, and a horrifically brutal murder.
