Jet Man Soars Over Swiss Alps

Published November 28, 2011| SkyNews

The self-styled "jet man" has performed another death-defying stunt -- flying alongside two Albatross aircraft above the Swiss Alps.

Adventurer Yves Rossy flew in a custom-built jet suit over the mountain range in formation with the aircraft. Rossy, 51, launched himself from the side of a helicopter before taking his place alongside the two jets high above the Alps.

The daredevil -- who used to fly fighter jets with the Swiss air force -- wears a jet suit which has a wing span of about six and a half feet. The pack weighs around 120 pounds and is fitted with four engines that enable him to travel at speeds in excess of 125 mph.
