‘Jetman’ Flies Again

by Nancy Atkinson on May 4, 2012

Wondering where your jetpack is? This guy built his own. Known as Jetman or Fusionman, former fighter pilot Yves Rossy has used his jetpack to fly over various places like the Grand Canyon, the Swiss Alps, across the English Channel and has even flown in formation with jet planes. This week he dropped from a helicopter strapped to his winged jetpack to circle over Rio de Janeiro. Ride along and enjoy the views from his helmet cam. He lands successfully, just a couple feet short of his target.

See images of his latest flight on Rossy’s website.
