“JETMAN” FLIES WITH BREITLING JET TEAM: IS TONY STARK SO FICTIONAL NOW?

Another top-flight feat makes aviation history.

After crossing the Channel, flying alongside two Boeing Stearman biplanes carrying the Breitling Wingwalkers, looping the loop around a hot-air balloon and hurtling across the sky over the Grand Canyon, Yves “Jetman” Rossy has shifted up yet another gear with a formation flight alongside two jets from the Breitling Jet Team.

The world’s first jet-powered man jumped off a helicopter with his rigid wing equipped with four jet engines.

Adjusting his trajectory and altitude by his body movements alone, he then performed aerobatic figures above the Swiss Alps in the company of two L-39C Albatros planes from the Breitling Jet Team, the world’s largest professional civilian aerobatics team performing on jets.

A stunning show – and a major new accomplishment supported by Breitling, the privileged partner of worldwide aviation.
