As if you weren't jealous enough of Yves Rossy, new footage has just been released of the Swiss Pilot, inventor and "aviation enthusiast" (who also goes by the not-so-subtle sobriquet of "JETMAN") soaring free as a rocket-powered bird high above the Swiss Alps.
His wings: an eight-foot-wide, carbon-fiber wing of his own invention. His propulsion system: kerosene-fueled jet turbines. His air speed: almost 200 miles-per-hour. His mettle: unparalleled.
You hear that? You cannot touch Yves Rossy. Don't even try. [Via Evert Cloetens]
