PARIS (STORYFUL) - French inventor Franky Zapata demonstrated his flyboard before President Emmanuel Macron and other European dignitaries as part of Bastille Day celebrations in Paris on Sunday, July 14.

Zapata, carrying a rifle, soared above the annual military display on his Flyboard Air, a device he invented.

Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly was quoted by RFI as saying the Flyboard Air potentially had “different kinds of uses” including “as an assault platform”.
