'Jetman' Flies Alongside Albatross Jets

The Jetman has logged a range of flights over the years, crossing Lake Geneva in 2002, the English Channel in 2008, and the Grand Canyon in 2011, the Daily Mail reports. Rossy's most recent stunt, shown below, involved flying, in formation, over the Swiss Alps, alongside two L-39C Albatross jets. The planes were part of the Breitling Jet Team; Breitling also sponsored Rossy. In video from the stunt, Rossy plummets out of a helicopter, before activating his engines, and surging forward into formation. So what's powering the famed jet wing? Four Jet-Cat P200 engines, powerful enough to drive the wing, which weighs about 120 pounds with fuel, forward through the air.
