Video shows ‘Jet Man’ Yves Rossy exiting Breitling helicopter and joining flight formation with two fighter jets.

Amazing pictures from Switzerland show where “jetman” Yves Rossy gave this incredible flying display, using a tailor-made jet pack with tail wings strapped to his back. The aviation enthusiast jumped from a Breitling helicopter and performed a series of aerial acrobatics above the Swiss Alps. He then joined two jet planes in a synchronized flight. To synchronize their flight paths the jets reduced their speed to 220 kilometres per hour (137 miles per hour), which put their engines at a point close to stalling. Rossy’s previous aerial feats include flying the English Channel and doing a loop-to-loop around a hot-air balloon.

The Breitling Jet Team is the largest civilian aerobatic display team in Europe. Based in Dijon, France, it flies seven Aero L-39 Albatros jets. Since the 2010 season all of the fleet received a new livery in the colours of sponsor Breitling. Worldwide Aero L-39 Albatros jets serve as trainers and fighter planes.
