Jetman flies over Rio
Swiss former fighter pilot and inventor Yves Rossy took to the skies over Rio de Janeiro Brazil Wednesday using his kevlar winged jet pack. Superman eat your heart out.
Nicknamed “the Jetman,” Rossy jumped from a helicopter, flew around its historic landmarks like a comic book super hero, and landed on Copocabana beach.
Yves Rossy was the first person in the world to fly using a jet-powered wing. He invented the jet pack himself, and had his first successful flight over the Swiss Alps in 2008.
