Swiss 'Jetman' flies w/ jet-propelled wing

November 26, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
Swiss Pilot Yves "Jetman" Rossy is expanding the possibilities of human flight by flying with a jet-propelled wing.

He created a contraption using four model jet engines, allowing him to fly until the fuel runs out. Then, he parachutes back to earth.

In his latest feat, he flew next to two private jets.

He has been doing such stunts for five years including flights over the Grand Canyon and the English Channel.
