Man flies with Jets posted

The Swiss inventor and pilot known affectionately as the Jetman, has
donned his strap-on wing suit once again, and this time he's flown in
formation alongside two L-39C Albatros jets from the Breitling Jet Team,
the world's largest professional civilian aerobatics squad.
Don't fret if you weren't there -- the entire event was caught on
camera. The resulting video, which can be seen above, starts with Rossy,
in his Brietling-branded jet wing, clambering on to the side of a
helicopter. Once at an altitude of, ooh, say, extremely blinkin' high,
Rossy lets go of the chopper, fires up the four jets attached to his
wings, and cruises in formation with the two Albatros jets.
