‘Jetman’ flies over Rio using super-cool jetpack5/3/2012
This may look like a test shot for "The Incredibles," but Yves "Jetman" Rossy dreamed of flying long before Syndrome invented rocket boots. The 52-year-old Swiss pilot's 11-minute flight yesterday over Rio de Janeiro began with a terrifying-looking helicopter drop, after which he circled around the Christ the Redeemer statue and ended with a (somewhat) gentle landing onto Copacabana beach, where it looks like he just missed his target. Rossy is proving to be one super-hot advertising campaign for watchmaker Breitling, whose logo is plastered all over the Jetman's equipment.
