Yves Rossy A.K.A. Jetman, the Swiss adventurer who has pulled of some amazing flying stunts with the help of his winged jet pack was at it again, last week.

On Friday November 5th, the former airline pilot leaped into the Swiss skies from a height of 2,400 meters and flew two ariel loops whilst testing a new more aerodynamic version of the jet-pack with a smaller wingspan and no foldable parts.

While he is known best for his 2008 flight across the English Channel, Rossy has performed many amazing stunts with the help of his carbon fiber 'wings' that are attached to small kerosene burning engines. Now that he has even better equipment, we wonder what he will attempt next!
