Yves Rossy Jet Man
November 28, 2011 by staff
Yves Rossy Jet Man, Anyone glancing up at the skies over the Swiss Alps recently might have caught a glimpse of something quite odd: a bloke with a jet-powered rucksack flying alongside some fighter jets. No, seriously.
Yves Rossy, the Swiss inventor and pilot known affectionately as the Jetman, has donned his strap-on wing suit once again, and this time he’s flown in formation alongside two L-39C Albatros jets from the Breitling Jet Team, the world’s largest professional civilian aerobatics squad.
Don’t fret if you weren’t there — the entire event was caught on camera. The resulting video, which can be seen above, starts with Rossy, in his Brietling-branded jet wing, clambering on to the side of a helicopter. Once at an altitude of, ooh, say, extremely blinkin’ high, Rossy lets go of the chopper, fires up the four jets attached to his wings, and cruises in formation with the two Albatros jets.
