You might not know Yves Rossy by name, but there’s a decent chance you’ve seen him before. He’s one of the only people in the world with a working jetpack — and he’s really good at flying it. We’ve seen him fly next to a B17 bomber, circle Mount Fuji, and soar over the Grand Canyon. But the man with the jetpack just released his most hair-raising video yet.
The video is proportionally scaled in its grandeur — ripe with more than 11 minutes of beautiful HD footage shot from a chase plane and the GoPros attached to Rossy and his “jetman protégé” Vince Reffet.
The jet-powered fun starts innocently enough over the desert where the two twist, dive, and climb through a sunset-filled sky. The jetpacks, by the way, let Rossy and Reffet go more than 120 miles per hour. The result is a particularly dizzying action that makes that “balloon boy” video look stable.
